Wow, chocolate chip cookies get a holiday makeover in this recipe. Sweet and crunchy, these chocolate chip cookies have everything you want in a cookie. Using Andes creme de menthe chips and peppermint oil amps up the minty flavor. They taste like the holidays! Try to eat these while they're still warm ... so good!

How to Make Catsie's Holiday Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream together butter and sugar.
  2. Add egg, vanilla, and peppermint oil and blend.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, cornstarch, soda, and salt.
  4. Sift and add to creamed mixture.
  5. Stir until blended.
  6. Stir in chips and nuts.
  7. Make balls of dough using 2 Tbsp size cookie scoop. Roll each in hand to ball shape and place all on one cookie sheet.
  8. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour.
  9. (At this point chilled cookies can be placed in plastic freezer bag and freeze. Thaw 20 minutes before baking.)
  10. Placed chilled dough balls 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  11. Bake 15 to 18 minutes at 325 degrees or until browned and a bit crispy around the edges
  12. Sometimes I add crushed up hard peppermint candies instead of adding the oil. Just crush and measure with the nuts.
