Chocolate Peppermint Cookies ~ By Caroline

The cookie part and ingredients for these cookies are pretty much the same as our white chip chocolate cookies ( only with mint extract, mint icing and candy for topping.  They're very delicious and a super cute, festive dessert for Christmas time! :-) 

Ingredients For Cookies:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon mint extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups cocoa powder
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups white chocolate chips

Icing and Candy Topping:
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp mint extract
Crushed peppermint candies for dusting
  1. Heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until creamy.  Add eggs and flavors; beat until light and fluffy.  Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into butter mixture. Stir in white chips.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake 8-9 minutes.  (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft and puffy and will flatten slightly during cooling) Cool on a wire rack.
  4. Mix together icing ingredients in a medium bowl, and adjust milk/sugar if needed to reach the right consistency. (It should be pretty thick so that it doesn't run off the cookies at all)
  5. Sprinkle crushed mint candies on freshly iced cookies
Yields: About 4 dozen cookies
