Lavender Peppermint Christmas Cookies

Making Christmas Cookies is a no brainer. Sugar cookies are always a delight, but can get boring year after year. That is why this recipe is so wonderful. Its a unique twist on a wonderful sugar cookie recipe, with memorable flavors you family will love. You get the spice of the peppermint, and the cleanness from the lavender. This is one sugar cookie you won't soon forget!

Cookie Ingredients: 

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup room temperature butter
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup lavender sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
5 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp water

Frosting Ingredients: 

1 stick butter at room temperature 
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
24 ounces powdered sugar
1/4 tsp peppermint oil 
1 tsp lavender salt
lavender buds for sprinkling on top (optional) 


Mix together your oil, butter, sugars, and eggs. Once smooth add your dry ingredients and water. Roll your dough into a sheet and cut into your favorite Christmas shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. While the cookies cool, mix together your frosting ingredients. I like to add my milk last and I add it tablespoon by tablespoon until I reach the consistency I like, which is like a thick toothpaste, but its up to you. Then once the cookies are cooled, you can frost away.
