Peppermint Swirl Cookies


The Holiday season is in full swing and Nestle has a fun contest going on.  When you get together and Bake Some Love™ this holiday season, you could win some great prizes with the main prize being $5,000!  Just create a Holiday treat using Nestle Toll House Morsels or Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough.

I created a simple recipe using the Nestle Toll House Sugar Cookie dough and  Nestle Premier White Morsels.  I called them Peppermint Swirl Cookies because they have a swirl of crushed peppermint candy canes in them.   Then, they get a drizzle of Nestle’s Premier White Morsels.  It’s the perfect combination for a sweet holiday treat!
