Peppermint-Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 2 C flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 8oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 C finely chopped peppermint candy
Instructions:

Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in egg, salt, vanilla and peppermint extract until incorporated. Beat in flour. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (smallest cookie scoop works well) and place on cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks and cool completely.

When cookies have cooled, dip tops in melted chocolate and then into peppermint candy. Let harden, preferrably overnight.
