Peppermint Melteway Cookies Recipe

like to think of Christmas as not only the season of carols, lights, sweets and Santa but also as the season of cookies.
Season of cookies….has a nice ring to it doesn’t it?
I think the reason that I eat so many different cookies at this time of year is because there are so many parties and special occasions to make them. And we all have a “special or must-have” cookie recipe in our recipe box, but do you have a Peppermint Meltaway Cookies recipe???
