Ingredients

  • 3

    cups flour

  • 3/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    cup butter (2 sticks), softened

  • 1

    cup light brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup granulated sugar

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla or peppermint extract (it depends on if you REALLY like mint or just like mint)

  • 1

    package candy canes, crushed

  • 1

    cup white chocolate chips

  • 1

    bag Holiday Mint M&Ms

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two-three cookie sheets with parchment paper. You're making approximately 4 dozen cookies, by the way. 2. To crush the candy canes, unwrap each of them and put them in a large Ziploc bag. Close it up, set the bag on top of a cutting board, and start whacking them with a garlic press or a hammer or whatever you have that works. You want to crush them into small pieces, but you don't have to turn them into dust. A happy medium of some dust and some chunks is good. 3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Whisk them a second. 4. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugars at low/medium speed until creamy. 5. Add the egg and mix some more. 6. Add the vanilla or mint extract and mix some more. 7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until everything is happy and well combined. 8. Pour the white chocolate chips, crushed candy canes, and about half the bag of M&Ms in the bowl. Stir until well mixed. 9. Use a tablespoon to grab a scoop of cookie dough. Roll it into a ball (about 1") and place it on the cookie sheet. Do that until your cookie sheet is full. Smoosh the cookies with your palm so that you have flat circles. 10. Use the remaining M&Ms to pretty up the cookies. I pressed 2-3 on the top of each cookie. 11. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. 12. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, and then use a spatula to transfer them to a cooling rack until you're ready to package them up.
