Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I am a cook. But a baker? Not so much! I need alot of practice in that area! Last night my sister Shantel and I were baking fools, making last minute cookies for a cookie exchange this weekend! We made 6 1/2 dozen of these babies! They turned out good though, I love the crunch they have from the crushed candy canes when you bite into them. It's a great cookie for the holidays!

What you need:
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup butter, at room temp
1 c. packed light brown sugar
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temp
3/4 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. crushed candy canes

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Using a mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla on medium speed just until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Beat in the eggs one at a time until thoroughly incorporated, then stir in the flour mixture followed by the chocolate and peppermint chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour before baking.

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Bake, rotating the baking sheets midway through baking, until the cookies are very lightly browned in the centers, about 10 minutes.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets until firm enough to handle, then use a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack. Enjoy!!

Makes appx 4 dozen, depending on how big you make the cookies!
