Peppermint Patties Recipe and a Giveaway from Country Door

Homemade Peppermint Patties are so easy to make and they are so good! This classic treat  is a perfect gift from the kitchen.

Peppermint Pattie RecipeI can’t believe it is already our final Holiday Progressive Dinner but here we are at week 7! This week’s theme is gifts from your kitchen. My sister was the inspiration for these Peppermint Patties. She makes them every year and they are one of my favorite treats. There have even been some years where she has tucked some into my Christmas gift!

Bowls From Country DoorThis week’s sponsor is Country Door. I chose a set of Inspirations Mixing Bowls and a set of Confetti Bowls. The Inspirations mixing bowls came with three bowls. One largest bowl says Simplicity, the middle bowl says Excellence and the smallest bowl says Kindness. The confetti bowls has four bowls (one is missing). They are blue, orange, yellow and green. I took these photos before leaving for a blogger event and I didn’t realize that one of the bowls was missing from my photo…the green one!

Country Door BowlsI’ve been using these bowls from Country Door for some many things since receiving them. My kids even use them (which is probably where my green bowl disappeared to). The confetti bowls are made of recycled melamine and they are sturdy enough to stand up to an electric mixer. The Inspirations Bowls are earthenware and they are dishwasher and microwave safe.

How To Make GravyThese bowls are not only good for mixing but you can also serve out of them. In the picture above, I used the small bowl for gravy. On Thanksgiving, I filled the largest bowl, that says Simplicity on it, with stuffing! You can enter to win a set of Simplicity Bowls and Canisters from Country Door below!
