|Peppermint Crackle Cookies|

The smell of cookies filling your house, while Christmas music plays, while sipping your favorite holiday drink, just sounds perfect.

I love how pretty these cookies look. The contrast of the dark brown and the bright white. What I love more about these cookies is how delicious they are. They are the perfect mix of chocolate and peppermint.

Get into the Christmas spirit and get these cookies into your oven and then into your belly! These pair perfect with my Homemade Hot Cocoa. Click here for recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup white sugar

  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  1. Cream 1 stick of butter and 2/3 cup sugar. This takes about 5 minutes. Start on low until mixed. Work your way up to a high speed. Mix until smooth.
  2. Add in 1 egg at a time, 4 eggs total. Add in 2 tsp peppermint. Mix for about 30 seconds.
  3. In a separate bowl mix 2 cups of flour, 2/3 cup cocoa powder, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and a dash of salt.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix fully. The batter should be moist and a little sticky.
  5. Chill in refrigerator for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  7. Taking about a Tbsp at a time of batter roll into balls. Makes about 28 cookies.
  8. Roll each ball generously in powdered sugar. Really coat it!
