18 cookies


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  4. Gradually add in flour mixture on low speed. Stir until dough forms.
  5. Using your hands, form balls of dough with 1 tablespoon of dough and place on prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and using bottom of a glass, flatten cookie into a disk. Let cookies cool completely.
  7. Cream butter and shortening in a stand mixer. Add vanilla, peppermint extract and salt.
  8. Gradually add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl as needed.
  9. Transfer frosting into piping bag and pipe onto cooled cookies.
