Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peppermint and put it in everything I can this time of year. And this year I decided that peppermint chocolate chip cookies would be a good idea, and it was! I have made a couple of batches already, some for my husband and I and I took some to my recycling coalition meeting. They have been a hit and they are very easy.



  • 2 sticks of softened butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Chocolate chips, to your tastes
  • Crushed peppermint, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until smooth.
  4. Beat in eggs in the butter mixture.
  5. Mix in vanilla and peppermint extracts in the butter and egg mixture.
  6. Slowly mix in flour.
  7. Fold in chocolate, and if you are using crushed peppermint add it as well.
  8. Scoop out balls of dough, place on cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until edges are slightly brown.
  10. Let cool and enjoy.
