Sandwich Cookies with Chocolate and Peppermint

To various individuals, Christmas means different things. Spending time with my family. Returning the favor. Presents are exchanged. Taking a break from work…. Christmas, on the other hand, signifies cookies to me. Like Cookie Monster’s degree of crazy when it comes to cookies. Every day, all day.

Of course, the quality of your ingredients is crucial if you want to produce the tastiest cookies ever. Butter and cocoa powder, for example, are both high-quality components that may make or break your cookies. I can’t tell you how many cookies I’ve prepared using low-quality butter that don’t look like cookies produced with high-quality butter.

Vermont Creamery’s Cultured Butter with Sea Salt is my ultimate favorite butter. It’s prepared with fresh, high-quality cream and churned to a butterfat content of 82 percent, resulting in the moistest scones, flakiest shortbreads, and softest chocolate peppermint sandwich cookies.

How to put together the perfect dessert buffet for the holidays

I’m generally found around the dessert table, nibbling on all of the Christmas cookies, candy bowls, pies, and cakes. It is, without a doubt, the ideal location to be. When I organize a party, I want all of my guests to be there. As a result, we’re going to teach you how to build the finest Christmas dessert table ever:

  1. Choose a taste profile that is a combination of traditional and unique: These Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies are a holiday staple. Make a few classic varieties (buckeyes, cut-out sugar cookies, etc.) but also experiment with novel tastes like gingerdoodles or tahini chocolate chip cookies!
  2. Everything should be bite-sized: our stomachs can only hold so much. Everything should be bite-sized so that your visitors may try it everything without sliding into a sugar coma.
  3. Make a range of various kinds of desserts: Cookies aren’t the only thing on dessert platters! Cheesecake bars, coconut layer cakes, and truffles are all possibilities!
  4. Get some take-out containers: I’m all for having a lot of desserts on the table, but that means there will be leftovers. As a result, be sure to send your visitors home with a gift bag full of delicious delicacies!

Babes, have a wonderful Christmas Cookie Season! For your next cookie exchange, make these delectable chocolate peppermint sandwich cookies!

Ingredients

For the Chocolate Cookies, follow these instructions:

To make the peppermint buttercream, combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Two baking sheets should be greased or lined with parchment paper. Remove from the equation.
  2. 2 minutes on medium speed, cream butter and brown sugar in a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. 1 minute after adding the egg, vanilla essence, and salt, beat for another minute.
  3. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add the cocoa, flour, and baking soda, beating just until incorporated.
  4. To scoop dough balls, use a 1/2 ounce cookie scoop (or a 1 oz cookie scoop and split the dough in half). To make a slightly flattened disk, roll each ball between hands to create a perfect circle, then put on prepared baking sheet and press down gently. There should be 32 scoops of dough total.
  5. Remove from the oven after 7 minutes and allow cookies to rest on baking sheets until room temperature.
  6. To prepare the buttercream, mix together the butter, sugar, peppermint extract, and milk for approximately 2 minutes, or until light and frothy. Fold the candy cane bits in gently until barely incorporated. Fill a piping bag with frosting and a medium tip.
  7. Half of the cookies should be frosted, then the remaining cookies should be sandwiched together. Drizzle with chocolate and candy canes that have been crushed! Keep refrigerated until ready to use. In the fridge, it can keep for up to 5 days.
