Heiðrún´s peppermint cookies with white chocolate

      Christmas is my favorite time of year. One thing that always gets me into the holiday spirit is baking cookies. Every year I bake a lot of them both from old family recipes and from new ones as I love to try out new things when it comes to baking. As peppermint always reminds me of Christmas I created these peppermint flavored cookies with white chocolate and they are amazing! I highly recommend that you try and make these as you will not be disappointed. They are very easy to make and taste especially good with a cup of hot cocoa.   Recipe 110 gr butter –soft 80 gr sugar 50 gr brown sugar 1 – 1 ½ tsp Peppermint Drops 150 gr flour ½ tsp baking soda ¼ tsp salt 30 gr cocoa 1 large egg 25 ml milk 150 gr chocolate drops or chopped chocolate (dark) Method To cover the cookie 170 gr white chocolate (I recommend the white chocolate from Wilton, you can buy it in Kostur) 10-12 pieces of Bismarck peppermint candy Method Stir together butter, sugar, brown sugar and peppermint drops in a bowl until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and egg and stir well. While stirring the mixture, add the milk. Add the chocolate drops. The mixture should be pretty thick. Roll your mixture into balls (a little bit smaller than a golf ball) and place them on a baking paper. Make sure you have enough space between them. Bake at 180 ° C for 12-14 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool completely. Melt the white chocolate over a water bath. Break the Bismark candy into very small pieces. I like to use a Mortel to break them. Dip the cookies in white chocolate…
