Peppermint White Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe

Happy December everyone! I am so excited that it’s finally December. This whole month for me is filled with love, joy, happiness, and laughter! What’s better than to kick off this month with some festive cookies? Nothing, of course! This recipe is super easy, quick, and delicious! The perfect accessory to any holiday party, is cookies for dessert. In this post, I’m going to be sharing this amazing Peppermint White Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe!

What You’ll Need: 

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 1/2 cups (15 oz) white chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp shortening
  • 1/3 cup peppermint bits or finely crushed candy canes (This part I did not measure, I eyed it by how many cookies I had and made enough for that amount). 
  • Hand Mixer or Electric Stand Mixer
  • 2 Bowls
  • Cookie Sheet with parchment paper
  • Cookie Scooper – and ice-cream scooper works just as well
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar.
  3. In another bowl, combine sugar and butter. Mix in egg then mix in egg yolk, vanilla and peppermint extract.
  4. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until combined (you may have to stop using the mixer and finish by hand, for the dough can become very thick).
  5. Scoop dough out and shape into balls (1/2 – 2″) then place onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (this is also something I never measure, I just eye it and if they come out to big it’s okay for me, the bigger the cookie the better).
  6. Bake in preheated oven 10 – 11 minutes (cookies should appear slightly under-baked). Remove from oven and allow to cool.

For the white chocolate:

  1. Place white chocolate chips and shortening in a medium microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for 1 minute or so, until completely melted.
  2. Dip one side of the cooled cookies halfway in the white chocolate. Then transfer back onto your cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and immediately sprinkle with peppermint bits (If using candy canes, you will have to break and smash them first).
  3. Let dry and completely cool before serving.
