The big day is less than a week away!!! Are you ready??? My children are already bouncing off the walls with excitement. If you have any parties or neighbor gifts you need to make, then try these cookies out!! They are flavored with candy canes so they are perfect for the Christmas season. The original cookie recipe was called Peppermint Whoopie Pies, but I made a cake mix cookie instead just to make it easier. I did make one batch with the original recipe and they were yummy too! You can find the original recipe HERE.
