Chocolate Mint Christmas Cookies


What I am about to show you is one of my 2 favorite Christmas cookies recipes. The other will follow in a week or two. These things are killer. SO yummy! The only problem is that they are sandwich cookies, so when you eat 1 cookie, it’s like eating 2. But we can pretend it’s not, right?

I introduce you to Chocolate Peppermint Creme Cookies:

Ingredients
  • 3 C Flour
  • 1¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ C brown sugar
  • ¾ C margarine
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 C chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
Instructions
  1. Sift dry ingredients together and set aside.
  2. In a large pot mix brown sugar, margarine, and water and heat on the stove until it starts to boil.
  3. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Beat in eggs.
  6. Stir in dry ingredients.
  7. Roll into balls (if it is too soft, wait for a few minutes-it will firm up a little). If needed, add a little more flour.
  8. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Best if still soft.
  9. Sandwich and frost with peppermint frosting.

Peppermint Frosting:

  • 2 C Powdered Sugar
  • 1/3 C soft butter (not margarine)
  • About 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • Green food coloring (just as a note, I don’t usually make mine such a bright green. More of a mint is better.)

Blend these ingredients, then beat in 2 more cups of powdered sugar alternately with 1/4 C milk.

    Did not turn out at all :( makes me so sad to waste good ingredients. The Frosting was way too watery and took well over 3 cups of powdered sugar to get a thicker consistency. The cookies themselves spread and ran all over my cookie sheets. I made sure to follow the recipe to a T (I am very careful when trying new recipes) The cookies (that I was able to salvage) also taste very bland…not sure where I went wrong. Bummer!

      Bummer! Did you use margarine or butter? Butter will make them spread more. And did you add extra flour? I had to add more flour to make them so that I could roll them into balls.
