Have you ever noticed there are not many cookie recipes on Call Me PMc?

I’m super picky about cookies and I have only been completely over-the-moon with one cookie recipe. It’s my super secret Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. It’s my fall-back get rich cookie recipe so I haven’t been compelled to share it yet. I’m saving it for a ‘rainy day’ or when we need to make the mortgage payment or pay for college. (Of course, I’m being sarcastic, but it is good great!)

But, guess what?!

I love this Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe just as much.

And, I’m not keeping it a secret.

What makes a good cookie?

  1. I like oversized cookies because then you can say, “I just had one cookie”. Really, you don’t have to reveal it was the size of a plate!
  2. They have to be soft in the center.
  3. And crispy on the edges.
  4. And preferably warm.

So without further adieu I give to you my Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4 dozen
Using a large scoop, I had 26 cookies. If you make them small (regular size), you'll have about 4 dozen. Use 2 cookie sheets. Allow the cookie sheet to cool off before placing second batch of dough on them. Never place cookie dough on a hot sheet.
  • 1 and ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 2 cup white, granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cup Andes peppermint crunch chips
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  3. In another bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually add this to the butter mixture.
  4. Stir in chips by hand.
  5. The mixture will be THICK.
  6. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Chill in refrigerator 10 minutes.
  8. I used a regular sized ice cream scoop for extra large cookies.
  9. Drop dough onto a greased, cold cookie sheet.
  10. Bake 17 minutes at 350 degrees for crisp edges and gooey centers.
  11. Remove from oven and allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing.
  12. After 2 minutes, using a thin spatula, move to a wire rack to cool.

Thanks so much for sharing your recipe – pinning and sharing! Hope you have a great Monday and it’s not too cold in your neck of the woods. It’s absolutely freezing here! 🙂

      Thanks Cindy, It’s colder than I prefer, but I’ll make it. It was 33 this morning when I ran.

      Thanks for sharing, I’m addicted to these cookies, making another batch today with the boys.

      I apologize about my site yesterday. It didn’t even occur to me to not ‘work’ on it when MM had just started! #duh

    These cookies look incredible and so indulgent! I’m with you and think oversized warm and soft cookies are the best, and chocolate and peppermint are incredible together. I can see why these are one of your favorite cookies, I wish I had a few of these for breakfast now 🙂 Pinning and thanks so much for sharing this great recipe :)Hope you have a great week!

      I choke up every time I think about them going to college :/ — I think I only have 2 other ones. I did love making these cookies though.

      Thank you, Marcie. I was really pleased with them. I don’t know if it’s good or bad, but they put me in the cookie making mood!

    Paula I made these just yesterday and although they taste delicious they did not turn our soft at all? Any suggestions? I am located in Nevada so not sure if altitude had anything to do with my problem?
