Peppermint Crispies Holiday Cookie Recipe

Do you remember last year when Sarah from Room For Tuesday invited me to join her holiday cookie recipe blog hop? I shared my Great Aunt Idella’s Butter Cookie recipe. BTDubs, those bad boys legit have 4 sticks of butter in them and will melt in your mouth. Well, we’re doing it again this year. I’ve teamed up with a killer group of bloggers (listed at the bottom) who are sharing their favorite holiday cookie recipes. Mine is another childhood favorite — Peppermint Crispies — basically a peppermint meringue cookie with chocolate chips.

West Elm Wants

West Elm is one of my favorite home furnishing stores, and they have been killing it lately. They have such a clean, modern look that really fits my decor of mixing old and new with a twist of Mid Century Modern.

For today’s post, I decided to pull together a few of my absolute favorites. Managing to restrain myself and keep it to a Top 10 list. Soooo difficult! Seriously you guys, I swear I could buy every single item in this store. But alas, I cannot. The Boy might string me up by my toes and have me publicly shamed if I did so.

However, if you are looking for something sweet for mom, dad, sister, brother, BFF, or just for yourself (which OMG, there’s only 7 more Fridays until Christmas…yikes! Get on that already!) I thought this little list might help ya out. Give you some gift giving ideas. So let’s get on with it, shall we? BTW, ALL images below are from West Elm.
