I had planned on making this cookie recipe for 2 years. Finally found time to create the recipe and make them. I love peppermint and I love chocolate. What a match made in heaven. Chocolate and peppermint go so well together. A great cookie to add to your cookie collection.
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of vegetable shortening, I use Crisco
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 12 ounce package of mini chocolate chips
1 package of Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a separate bowl add flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk together and set aside. In your mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and blend. Add flour, a little at at time and incorporate. Repeat until all four is mixed in. Add chocolate chips and peppermint baking chips. Drop by spoonfuls or use a small scoop. Bake for 9-11 minutes until cookies are done. Don’t forget to leave some for Santa! 🎅🏻 Enjoy!
