Brownie Peppermint Cookies

This year for Christmas Shane and I did some baking for our family as gifts. We each got to pick something out we thought would be fun and yummy! Shane picked Apple Bread, I picked these Brownie Peppermint Cookies and we both decided to add some fudge to each bag. Everything turned out great and very yummy!

This is another recipe I got off Pinterest
