How to make Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
To prepare this amazing snack recipe preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius. Then, take a mixing bowl and sift together all purpose flour, baking soda, unsweetened cocoa powder and salt. Keep it aside.
Next, take another bowl and add unsalted butter in it along with white and brown sugar. Using an electric beater, beat them well until soft peaks form and the mixture is creamy and fluffy.
Now, crack open the egg in it and beat well once again until the mixture is smooth. Then, add vanilla extract in the mixture and whisk once again. Finally, fold the flour mixture in this bowl by mixing a little at a time. You can use a spatula or even the whisker to fold the flour. Once done, gently add in chocolate chips and mix well.
Next, place a cookie sheet which has not been greased in a large tray and drop a big spoon of the prepared batter about 2-inches apart. Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake the cookies until cracks appear on top for about 5-10 minutes. Once done, take out the tray and let the cookies cool completely.
Finally, prepare the glaze for cookies. For the same, take a small bowl and add water, icing sugar and peppermint extract in it. Mix well all the ingredients and transfer this mixture to a medium resealable plastic bag and cut its corner. You can decorate the cookie as you like and once done, let the cookies stand until set, for about 10 minutes. Enjoy! (Note: You can also pour the glaze over the cookies.)
