Get Into the Holiday Spirit 1 Taste Bud at a Time With These Peppermint Desserts

Lauren Pardee

To me, the holidays smell like pine trees, feel like being wrapped in cozy flannel, sound like Mariah Carey, look like fresh snowfall - and, my favorite of all, taste like peppermint.

That's why I keep a Rolodex of peppermint dessert recipes on rotation for all of December. I'll be baking up a storm (and hopefully during some snowstorms!) in fresh pajamas, with Spotify on blast, and a pine candle burning - because my fake tree can only do so much.
