White Chocolate and Peppermint baking chips come together so delicious in White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies. These cookies really are fantastic. I started with a delicious chocolate chip cookie dough but used white chocolate chips instead. Then I added Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips. Oh, my. Prepare yourselves for a sugar high in every bite!
A couple of weeks ago I was finishing out my Christmas Cookie Extravaganza baking for 2016. I made a lot of different shortbread blondies like Chocolate and Vanilla, Heath Toffee, Peppermint and White Chocolate Cranberry. I knew I wanted to add a few different flavors and textures to the mix, so I added Pecan Treats, White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies and these delicious cookies along with a lovely chocolate cookie.
I have been working on a blog project for four years to get over 600 first year blog recipes remade and photos retaken because all those first year recipes were shot with an iPhone. Ugh. I finally completed all the Christmas cookies I’ve baked over those years and now I have less than 20 recipes left until I’m all finished. Yay!
I had my husband looking all over town (he enjoys shopping), for the Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips and he finally found them at a Cost Plus World Market. I needed 6 bags to remake 6 different peppermint recipes posted on my blog back in 2012 and 2013. John bought me 10 bags, so I’ve been looking for ways to use up the other 4 bags. White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies and Peppermint Blondies are two of the ways I used up those Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips!
If you enjoy peppermint and white chocolate you will rave over these jewels. They will surely take your breath away after one bite! They are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth craving. They also freeze well! Enjoy.
White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies will take your breath away!
White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies will be a blast for any holiday party.
Chocolate and peppermint are fabulous in these cookies!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. Use real white chocolate chips, not vanilla or white baking chips. Those don’t have any cocoa butter in the ingredients and they’re not chocolate!
Place softened butter in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking soda and sea salt.
Cream with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add white chocolate chips and Andes peppermint crunch baking chips.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Grease cookie sheets. Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 about 12-15 minutes or until done. My cookies took 21 minutes because I was baking several racks at a time.
White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are great for holiday baking. They’re so festive and pretty.
Each bite will have you drooling.
Prepare yourself for a sugar high with these sweet cookies!
Here’s the recipe.
