These days I bake mostly to please myself. I don't strive for Grandma's cookie output, and I don't feel obliged to produce ALL of the traditional cookies. But Peppermint Puffs are still my Number One Cookie that I make each year. This year I got all wild and crazy and made some spearmint ones, too. Maybe I'll even try cinnamon.
But mostly I bake them only at Christmas, 'cause if I ate buttery cookies like that all years I'd be a butterball myself.
So without further ado, I bring Peppermint Puffs to the rest of the blogosphere.
