Peppermint Sugar Cookie Sandwiches with Chocolate Ganache Filling
These peppermint sugar cookie sandwiches with chocolate ganache are easy to make and a gorgeous addition to your holiday cookies.
Well, Thanksgiving is over. You know what that means!!! COOKIES.
But first, let’s talk about Thanksgiving. I hosted for the first year ever, but before you go and get impressed, I was only hosting Ben’s parents and my parents. I love to cook with my mom, so we had fun cooking together and trying new recipes. I prepped a lot ahead, but we tackled a few things the day of.
And of course, everyone contributed. My mother-in-law brought cheesy potatoes and a pumpkin roll. (PS: A cake roll of some sort is officially on my baking bucket list.) Oh and she brought a Honeybaked Ham. THE BEST. My mom brought two pies and the turkey. I made my Brussels sprouts salad with the best Pecorino Romano I think I’ve ever tasted. I also made slow cooker stuffing (so moist and perfect!), cinnamon apple cranberry sauce, green beans, braised parsnips, and baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon-honey butter.
As for the turkey – ooooh boy, was it good.
My mom and I cut it apart into pieces which was somewhat of an adventure. We were both going at it with knives – it’s a miracle no one lost a finger. We adapted a recipe out of Cooking Light magazine – a brown sugar and spice rubbed turkey with apple bourbon gravy. It was so good and I’m 100% going to recreate it again sometime soon with chicken.
But NOW we’re on to cookies. On Saturday, we made cutout sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. They had an absolute blast.
These cookies are a fancier version of the classic sugar cookie. Delicate peppermint sugar cookies sandwich rich, dark, flavorful ganache. The crushed candy canes on the edges make these so fun and fancy – perfect for any holiday party or Christmas cookie tray.
What’s going to be on your cookie tray this year?

Husband’s take: No complaints from the peanut gallery.
Changes I would make: None! But feel free to roll them in sprinkles if you’re not a candy cane fan.
Difficulty: Moderate. The cookies can be a bit fragile – just make sure your ganache is cooled off and thickened, but not too thick. Then, carefully but quickly spread it onto the cookiess.
