Whisk the wet ingredients and add the sieved dry ingredients to the bowl. Shape the dough into a round shape, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to cool. By cooling the biscuits they keep a nice shape during later baking. Approximately Chill for 3 hours or overnight.

To make the biscuits, scoop out enough dough to make a 1-inch ball. Once you have the ball, push it down a little to form a small biscuit shape. Do not worry, it will expand easily in the oven.

To decorate the biscuits, choose a peppermint candy that you like! I've used some classic peppermint and some special peppermint flavored M & Ms for these cookies. You can also use shredded candy canes if you have some that are lying around!

Bake the cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven. Enjoy!
