Serves 23people
Ingredients
3/4
cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1
cup granulated sugar
1
large egg
1
tsp vanilla extract
1/4
tsp peppermint extract
1 1/2
cups all-purpose flour
3/4
cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1
tsp baking powder
1/8
tsp salt
Directions
1.
Gather your ingredients.
2.
Beat 3/4 cups of butter for one minute, until completely smooth and creamy.
3.
Add 1 cup of granulated sugar. Continue to beat on a medium high speed until fluffy.
4.
Beat in one large egg, vanilla extract, and pepper extract on high speed.
5.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until combined.
6.
On low speed, slowly mix into the wet ingredients until combined.
7.
Roll out the dough on parchment to about a 1/4 thickness.
8.
Refrigerate for at least an hour. This step is *NOT* optional! When ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
9.
Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut into circles and transfer to a prepared baking sheet.
10.
Bake for 8 minutes (until cookies appear soft). Remember to rotate halfway through the bake time.
11.
While you're waiting, make the cookie topping! Mix together chocolate and oil using a double boiler. Once melted, add the peppermint extract.
12.
Dip each cooled cookie completely into the chocolate and use a fork to lift out. Return to baking sheet and chill in refrigerator to help the chocolate set.
