Around this time every year, I begin to gear up for cooking baking and more for the upcoming holidays.
I have a few cookie recipes that have become tried and true favorites here. These include meringue cookies, Peppermint Thumbprint Cookies and a few more, as well. Last year, I tried a new shortbread cookie recipe, too.
This year, I still will be making those favorites. But I also thought I would try something a bit different. I am still staying with the shortbread cookie theme. But instead of making them single and flat, I decided to make sandwich cookies with them. Plus, I am adding a peppermint buttercream filling that is just perfect for the holiday peppermint season.
So on a recent Walmart shopping trip, I picked up ingredients to make this new updated recipe for shortbread cookies, including and introducing new Land O Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half to make the buttercream icing filling. See Land O Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half is an extra rich blend of real milk and cream for the perfect morning coffee and so much more. Plus, it is extra indulgent with real milk and cream. And it is the way Half & Half should be.
Therefore, I couldn’t resist trying Land O Lakes® Buttercream Style Half & Half to make the perfect filling for my holiday induced peppermint shortbread sandwich cookies.

I love these cookies. Using the buttercream half & half for the frosting was a creat idea. This is my favorite time of year to spend in the kitchen too. The fall and Christmas flavors make your house smell amazing!
Your cookie pictures are beautiful too!
