Peppermint Patty Cookies

One of my co-workers is moving on and up to management so the little baker in the office, Liz, made some delicious Peppermint Patty Cookies to send him off.  They were so yummy I had to get the recipe and share will you all.  I am a huge fan of chocolate and mint so I am a little bias to this recipe.

Peppermint Patty Cookies

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY’S Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 24 to 26 small (1-1/2 inch) YORK Peppermint Patties
  • White decorator’s sugar

Directions

  1. 1 Beat butter and sugar in large mixing bowl; add egg, milk and vanilla, blending thoroughly. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, blending well. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. (Dough will be a little soft.)
  2. 2 Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper. Remove wrappers from peppermint patties.
  3. 3 Roll dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. For each cookie flatten ball slightly; press peppermint patty into dough. Mold dough around patty so that it is completely covered. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Using knife-edge press star design into surface of each cookie; sprinkle with decorator’s sugar.
  4. 4 Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until cookie is set; sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 2 dozen cookies.
