‘Tis the season! One of the most popular Christmas traditions is baking cookies. Every Christmas season people all around the world are baking away in their kitchens all sorts of cookies while blasting Christmas music. The most popular Christmas cookies are gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies,  thumbprint cookies, snicker-doodles, white chocolate cranberry cookies, and chocolate crinkle cookies. 

Today you will learn how to bake chocolate crinkle cookies, but with a peppermint twist. They are called peppermint blossom crinkle cookies.

Here’s what you will need:

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour (or gluten-free baking blend)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 and 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup light cream cheese
  • 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • Approx 1 cup powdered sugar for rolling
  • 48 peppermint kisses (the mint truffle kisses would also be delicious!)

This recipe makes four dozen ultra-soft, fudgy, minty cookies!”

What to do once you have all your ingredients ready:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together sugar, eggs, and cream cheese. Beat in melted chocolate and extracts until well combined. Slowly beat in flour mixture. If dough becomes too thick, use your hands to mix the rest of the way. Cover and chill for 2 hours (or longer).
  3. Preheat oven to 375. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or lining sheet. Pour powdered sugar into a wide, shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1″ balls and roll in powdered sugar until coated, then drop onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes until set and crinkles have formed. Immediately press a kiss into the top of each cookie. Let stand on cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes four dozen ultra-soft, fudgy, minty cookies. Enjoy your delicious Christmas treat!
