Chewy Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies
About 20 servings
These are inspired by my sweet friend Kate H. and recipe from the Big Oven app on iPhone. I LOVE peppermint especially at Christmas time! You can substitute pretty much anything for anything.
These are great!
2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
1 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Peppermint extract
1 Egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with either parchment paper or silicon baking pads (e.g., Silpad).
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown and white sugars until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, peppermint,egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough, then drop 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly browned. Check the cookies after 7 or 8 minutes and rotate the baking sheet for even browning. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
