Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies



Ingredients

• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 cup, butter
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 ½ Cups Chocolate Chips
• 1 Cup chopped Peppermints

For peppermint Egg Nog Glaze
• 4 oz cream cheese
• 2 cups of powdered sugar
• 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
• ¼ Cup of egg nog
• Dash of nutmeg (optional)
• Finely chopped peppermint

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Then add chocolate chips and stir. - Put in Freezer for 20
minutes
3. I prefer to add the peppermint once the mix is out of the freezer, so I can roll them in with the dough.
4. If you prefer not to freeze, cookies can be made by dropping batter directly on pan. IF you do decide to freeze them - you can roll cookie dough into golf sized balls and place on pan.
5. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes - let cool then glaze with Peppermint Egg Nog Glaze.
