Peppermint Chocolate Slice and Bake Cookies

Source: Becca

Serves: About 6 Dozen


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 candy canes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°.
  2. Mix eggs and vanilla in a small bowl. Beat butter and sugar in an electric mixer. Beat until smooth. Add egg mixture and blend until incorporated. Add the flours and blend on low until a dough is formed.
  3. Divide the dough in half. Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and put half of the dough on it. Using a floured hand, shape the dough into a 9" long roll. Cover with the wax paper and chill for a minimum of 45 minutes (the longer the better), or until dough is firm. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  4. Slice dough into 1/4" thick pieces. Bake for approximately 14 minutes. Cool on a rack.
  5. Melt the chocolate chips. Crush the candy canes by placing in a Ziploc bag and lightly hitting with a rolling pin. Spread the melted chocolate over the top of the cookie and sprinkle a small amount of crushed peppermint on top.
**I really liked these cookies, but the cookie part was a little bland. Next time I'll try adding some kind of artificial flavoring. The combination of  melted chocolate and peppermint is delicious though!
