Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies

Holiday baking is definitely in full swing at my house and it is starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

One of the important lessons I have learned in holiday baking is when you are using peppermint extract use the good stuff. The “pure” rather than imitation mint makes a big difference in the flavor.

I got the recipe for these cookies out of the December 2012 issue of Food and Wine Magazine.  The link will take you to the recipe on their website. These cookies are a little but time consuming but turn out adorable and are worth the time if you like mint!  One piece of advice is the thickness of the cookie will effect the baking time so I would keep an eye on it starting at about 9 minutes.

I dipped one edge of mine into the chocolate glaze and then dipped the edge immediately into crushed peppermints or sprinkles!  If you would prefer a less chocolate-y cookie you can leave the sandwiches as is.  Really the possibilities are endless!
