We’ll be honest: these are really more of a confection then a cookie, but that’s all the more reason to give them a spin this season. The peppermint candies that get pressed into the dough give these slice and bake sweets a festive look but they’re not your only option. You could just as easily roll this no-bake dough in crushed toasted pistachios or even roasted cocoa nibs for a double chocolate experience. These are on the delicate side so you’ll want to slice these just before serving. Put them out after a big holiday meal or leave a plate for Santa and his elves.

How to Make It

Step 1

Process the cookies in a food processor until finely ground, about 1 minute. Add the cream cheese, powdered sugar, mascarpone, and salt. Process until the dough forms a ball, 20 to 30 seconds.

Step 2

Dust the work surface with the cocoa. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 10-inch log. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Transfer the crushed candies to a piece of parchment paper. Roll each log in the candy until covered. Cut the logs into ½-inch slices and serve.
