Chocolate-Peppermint Shortbread

These festive Chocolate-Peppermint Shortbread cookies are full of holiday cheer and delight kids and grown-ups alike. You can feel good knowing they’re healthier than other holiday treats: They use a combination of butter and canola oil so they taste buttery-rich, but have less saturated fat. And they’re 100% whole-grain with a fine, crumbly, classic shortbread texture — thanks to whole-wheat pastry flour (look for it at natural food stores or specialty grocery stores).

Active time: 18 minutes Total time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
