White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

Published December 17, 2012 by thepinkgourmet

I am in the Holiday Spirit!!  I have started making my Christmas Cookies. I am really in to Candy Canes, Mint, and White Chocolate.  These cookies have a combination of those things.  The flavor in these cookies is delightful!!! The mint flavor is not too strong.  They are also really easy to make. I guarantee if you take these to a holiday party they will be a big hit.

White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies

Source

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Cookies with White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s, candy canes, and white chocolate chips. These cookies are festive and perfect for the holiday season!

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 cup white chocolate chips 1/2 cup crushed candy canes 1 cup White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside.

3. Cream butter and sugars together in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Stir in the white chocolate chips, candy canes, and M&M’s.

4. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough on prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack and cool completely.

Note-a few people commented that they made these cookies and they were too puffy and a little dry. You can try reducing the flour to 2 1/2 cups if you have this problem. I used 3 cups of flour though and they were just fine.

The first step is to combine your flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.  I used a cookie scoop. Bake in a preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.  You want the cookies to be golden around the edges but soft in the middle.

Transfer your cookies to a metal rack to cool.  If you are like me, I had to have a cookie warm from the oven.  All I can say about these is YUM, YUM, YUM!

I give this recipe plus out of 4……
