Deep Dish Peppermint Sugar Cookies

Emily Hutchinson

Yield: Makes 11 cookies



1 cup unsalted butter

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

½ to 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon cream of tartar

¼ teaspoon baking soda

⅓ cup Christmas colored nonpareils



1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Cream butter and salt for one minute.

3. Add in sugar and cream for two minutes.

4. Then, add in egg, vanilla and peppermint. Mix for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides of the bowl to make sure the butter and sugar is fully incorporated with the egg and extracts. Mix for another minute until it's all combined.

5. In a separate bowl with flour, add in cream of tartar and baking soda and whisk.

6. Add dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until it’s a dough.

7. To speed chill, rub the dough up the sides of the bowl with a spatula, to about ¼- ½ inch thick. Cover in plastic wrap and freeze for 5 to 10 minutes.

8. After dough chills, add in nonpareils and stir. Don’t stir too much or the sprinkles will start to bleed.

9. Take a large cookie scoop or ice-cream scoop that holds ¼ cup and scoop cookies out into a whoopie pie pan.

10. Gently flatten the tops of the cookies and bake on the middle rack for 8 to 10 minutes. Remember that cookies continue to bake after they come out of the oven and cool. They will be golden brown on the edges.

11. Let cool completely and enjoy OR decorate!


To decorate like Holly:

1. Use green frosting and tip 352. With the beak of the tip closed, start piping on the top part of your cookie.

2. Gently push in and out like the video shows, to get a textured and realistic look to the holly. 3. Make three Holly leaves.

4. Take tip 12 and red frosting and pipe little dollops in a cluster of three on the Holly leaves.


Enjoy, Xoxox Em
