This recipe sounds yummy and easy. I am not a fan of rolled cookies.

These would be a wonderful treat for Christmas time. -)

Yum, and a good way to use those candy canes

These are cute and great for a party. Coconut oil melted together with chocolate make a great coating. Coconut oil will firm up a lot when it and the chocolate cool so you don't have to worry about it staying soft unless it gets too warm. Regular chocolate would taste great also if you like chocolate and mint together. Fun to make with kids. They love rolling balls.

If it is not a holiday, which I use cookie cutters for, I just make my from scratch, spread the dough out and when baked I just cut them into squares. The peppermint would be a welcomed addition.

sounds good

My boys love sugar cookies and are always after me to make them. I am sure they would love these. I like that I can make them in my cake pops maker. I would make some without the candy canes as well. Can I use vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean paste?

I like to roll out the dough and use different shaped cookie cutters.

I can't say that I have a favorite way to make sugar cookies, but I do like to experiment with different recipes and techniques. Sugar cookies are pretty versatile, so they are good to experiment on with food coloring and various festive shapes. Last Christmas I made a variety of stars and crescents.

Any way that's fast works for me.

What is 'vanilla bean paste?'

Vanilla paste is a thicker form of vanilla extract which also contains some of the seeds from the vanilla pod (bean). The paste is usually thickened with a natural thickener called gum tragacanth, so it is not necessarily more concentrated than a liquid extract. You can buy it at Walmart, Target or online!

This sounds yummy.
