Total time: 
Serves: 2 dozen
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 Tbsp peppermint mocha creamer
  • 1 pkg white candy melts
  • peppermint crunch sprinkles ( I used Peppermint Andes Sprinkles)
  1. Blend together butter and powdered sugar.
  2. Add the flour, peppermint extract and mocha creamer.
  3. Once all the ingredients are incorporated, roll dough into a log.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Slice cookie log into ½" slices.
  7. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Remove and let cool on a wire cookie rack.
  9. Once the cookies have cooled, melt white candy melts in the microwave (follow package directions). Dip each cookie halfway into the melted white candy. I used a knife to spread the melted white candy. Sprinkle with peppermint crunch sprinkles immediately. Allow white candy to harden.
