  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 tbs unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1-1/4 cups white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed peppermint


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together to combine.
  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, whip butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add sugar, vanilla, and eggs, mixing between each addition until combined.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix to combine. Add Chocolate Chips and crushed peppermint. Mix on low until evenly dispersed.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Scoop batter into 1-inch balls and put on a prepared baking sheet, two inches apart.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the cookies are lightly brown on the edges.
  • Cool 2 minutes on a baking sheet and then remove the cookie filled parchment paper to a cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.


  • Don't crush candy canes too finely. The peppermint candy canes are sugar and can cause the cookies to spread too much.
  • Use a scoop when making cookies. They bake evenly when all the same size.
  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. If the candy sticks to the baking sheet it can burn.
