Prizes + Giveaway
Here we are at day three of a fantastic event helmed by Ellen of Family Around the Table with help from Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. These talented ladies are tireless and inspiring. They not only wrangled all of us foodie bloggers, but they lined up some amazing event sponsors who donated to us for recipe creation and also for prizes.

Go to my kick-off post to read about the prize packages and to enter the giveaway. Or you may enter at the bottom of this post. You won't want to miss out. Seriously. Your holiday baking will be kicked up more than a few notches.

The Rest of the Cookie Tray

Purely Peppermint Shortbread

So, not only did Ellen wrangle all of the food bloggers, but she lined up some fantastic sponsors who shipped us ingredients and items for use in creating recipes for the event. So nice! These cookies used the Pure Peppermint Extract from Adams Extract and Spice. I made them for a robotics competition - actually I made three different kinds of cookies - and these disappeared first.

Ingredients
  • 10 T butter
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 t pure peppermint extract (prefer Adams Extract and Spice*)
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1-3/4 C flour
  • granulated sugar, for rolling and sprinkling

Procedure

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in peppermint extract and maple syrup until well combined. Beat in the egg.

Roll the dough into a long cylinder. Put the dough in plastic wrap and chill for about an hour, until the dough is firm enough to slice.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough cylinder widthwise into 1/4" slices and place, slightly apart, on the baking sheets. 

Sprinkle with sugar and and bake for 16 to 18 minutes until slightly browned. 

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
