For the family cookbook, my cousin submitted a cookie I've tinkered with, and it’s a showstopper. These dreamy cookies with chocolate and mint pretty much melt in your mouth. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 5 to 6 teaspoons 2% milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Crushed candy canes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter and confectioners' sugar until creamy. Beat in cooled chocolate and extract. Gradually beat in flour. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Bake until set, 6-8 minutes. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, mix filling ingredients. Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag; insert a star tip. Transfer filling to bag; pipe onto bottom halves of cookies. Cover with remaining cookies.
  4. For glaze, microwave chocolate chips and shortening on high until melted, stirring every 30 seconds; add extract. Dip about two-thirds of each cookie into glaze, allowing excess to drip off; top with crushed candy canes. Place on waxed paper; refrigerate until set.
