White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
White chocolate chips and flakes of candy cane are held together by the tenderest cookie possible. They'll melt in your mouth and become a holiday favorite!


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temp
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes plus more for dipping
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch baking powder
  • 1 egg room temp
  • 1/2 cup sugar plus 1 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint oil


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. While the mixer is running add the egg then the vanilla and peppermint oil.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture and scrape the bowl down.
  5. Add the white chocolate chips and crushed candy canes and mix until just incorporated. 
  6. Place the cookie dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop if you have one. I recommend a 2 tablespoon sized portion for each cookie. 
  7. Dip each ball of cookie dough into a bowl filled with crushed candy canes. 
  8. Chill on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes in the refrigerator. Bake at 350F for about 6 to 7 minutes. 
  9. Allow for cool on cookie sheet.
