Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Cookies

Today I have been playing again, I found this recipe for Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Cookies and MAN they are yummy!  I am sorry but I cant remember where I got this one from but the original came from allrecipes.
I have adapted it a little from there and will put the recipe up here for you because these are a yummy Christmas treat!
Here is a look at what they look like:

But they taste so much more than they look!
1 cup Butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (add one extra teaspoon if using essence)
1 teaspoon peppermint essence
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy canes (now at the warehouse)


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and peppermint essence.
Add the sifted dry ingredients and beat again.
Now chill the dough after wrapping it in glad wrap for about an hour, then using two sheets of baking paper roll the cookie dough out in between the sheets and take off the top sheet and cut the dough with a cookie cutter of your choice of shape and cook on about 170 for about 15 min or until the cookies are brown around the edges.  When they are cool dip half the cookie in melted chocolate (white, brown or dark) and sprinkle a little more of the crushed peppermint canes over the cookie.

And you are done!  Easy and delicious :-)

Thanks for stopping bye!
