These cookies are so soft and delicious and you can use your favorite sugar cookie to create the sandwich cookie. I used Sweet Lorens Sugar Cookies with sprinkles candy cane pieces sprinkled on top after baking then filled it with a peppermint swirl buttercream and drizzled some melted chocolate on some of them. This is such an easy and delicious cookie recipe for the holiday season!
How To Pipe A Peppermint Swirl
To pipe the buttercream swirl on top and give the cookie a peppermint swirl-looking effect, I used a paintbrush dipped in red gel food dye and brushed 4 vertical lines starting at the top of my piping bag and working my way upward to the opening on the piping bag. You can pipe more or fewer lines depending on how you want your end result to look.
I use Americolor Food Gel. This is my favorite brand of food gel out there! The colors are so vibrant and a little goes a long way. I also use these tipless piping bags from Amazon. They are so handy and work so well for all of my creations. You can find both of these products by clicking on the linked texts above to my Amazon Storefront listings.
You can use your favorite brand of pre-sliced Sugar Cookies or you can use any of my Sugar Cookie recipes linked below! Also, always feel free to get creative with the decorating process! You can half dip some of the cookies in melted chocolate, you can add a little drizzle as I did, you can use red candy melts to drizzle and decorate to fit the color theme, and so much more!
