Peppermint White Chocolate Cookies

IMG_0443

Mission: create a cookie that tastes like Christmas. I had looked at various recipes to get some ideas but nothing was really catching my eye or tipping my taste buds. Later in the afternoon, I set out to make some cookies and the dough was almost ready but needed a little Christmas cheer. Peppermint & white chocolate seemed like the perfect fit!

Peppermint White Chocolate Cookies

2 T. ghee
1 egg
1/3 c. honey
1/2 T. vanilla extract
1/2 t. peppermint extract
2 1/4 c. almond flour
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/3 c. mini white chocolate chips
1 T. crushed candy + additional for topping

Preheat oven to 350F. Add the ghee, egg, honey, vanilla, and peppermint extract to a food processor. Gently pulse a few times until the ingredients are combined. Add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt and pulse to combine. Crush a candy cane in a plastic bag. Add 1 T. of crushed candy cane to the dough along with the chocolate chips and pulse quickly to combine. Scoop 1/2-1 tablespoon of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Slightly flatten, shape with hands (add a little water to hands so the dough doesn’t stick). Sprinkle the tops of cookies with remaining crushed candy cane. Bake at 350F for about 7-9 minutes checking frequently the last couple minutes. Remove from oven and allow to time to cool.

These cookies are the perfect flavor combination and texture in my book. They are chewy with a bit of crunch here and there! I hope you enjoy them with your friends and family!
Have a very Merry Christmas and I can’t wait to see you in the New Year!
