Hi Guys here is another cookie recipe that I want to share with you. The original recipe had called for chocolate chips, but being the Christmas season we used peppermint and this cookies came out amazing.
I am using my favorite cookie recipe book “The Cookie Jar” for this recipe. I do recommend purchasing this book. From all the cookie recipes we have tried none has been a fail.
2 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups peppermint pieces (this came in a bag)
Preheat oven 350 degrees
In an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs. Mix well. On low-speed, add flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until blended.
Stir in the peppermint chips
Drop from a teaspoon onto a parchment – lined cookie sheet, spacing each 2 inches apart.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until firm. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Cool cookies completely on parchment paper. Store in an airtight container.
