Total Time2 hrs 10 mins
- 1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1/4 cup candy canes crushed
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peppermint baking chips I used Andes
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, vanilla and peppermint extracts and mix well.
Turn the mixer down to low and slowly add the dry ingredients and crushed candy canes until well combined.
Turn the mixer off and fold in the white chocolate chips and peppermint baking chips until evenly distributed. Put the dough into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Scoop the dough (about 1 Tablespoons' worth) into mounds and roll them into balls.
Bake in your preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the cookies become a light golden color along the edges.
Cookies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or can be frozen and thawed. The room temperature cookies will keep for at least a week.
