More cookies! I came across this recipe a few nights ago and had to make them right that second. They turned out really good and I hope you enjoy!

What you’ll need:

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 tsp peppermint extract

1 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

2 candy canes, finely crushed

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add, peppermint extract and egg. Mix well until light and fluffy.

Sift in flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder over the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined. Add chocolate chips and stir or mix with your hands. Chill in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Roll into balls (1 tablespoon) and place on ungreased cookie sheet or one lined with parchment paper 1 1/2 inches apart. Press the tops down and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Sprinkle the cookies with crushed candy cane immediately after removing from the oven. Transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled. Store in an airtight container.
