Peppermint M&M Sugar Cookies

I love making sugar cookies for the holidays, but sometimes I get tired of the traditional version and want to do a little something more with them. So when I saw the peppermint M&Ms at the store, I got the idea to add them to sugar cookies, and I’m so glad I did! These are just the right amount of peppermint without being too overpowering.  Even my 2.5 year old approved … when I walked back into the kitchen, some of the M&Ms had gone missing from the cookies. Gotta love kids 🙂 And the best part about these cookies is that the M&Ms “melt” a little and make for that gooey bite that you can’t resist!
