Chocolate Surprise Cookies!

What do you get when you cross cookie dough with peppermint patties?


In the center of the cookies is hidden a delicious peppermint patty

You can just barely see the outline in the photo.

Here's the recipe.....

1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp cold water
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 + 1/2cup + 2Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 pkg small peppermint patties (bulk store is a great place to find these)

Combine butter, brown sugar, white sugar and egg together and mix well.

Stir in water and vanilla.

In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Add to dough and mix well.

Chill dough for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Shape about 1 Tbsp dough around each peppermint patty, making sure the edges are sealed, and then place them about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for approximately 7-10 min. or till lightly browned in 400F oven. Makes about 15 cookies.

My kids and I LOVE peppermint patties - what a great recipe!

I'm sure it's the kind of thing where you can't just eat one...or two.

Okay, I clicked on your blog to check out your show and tell, but I was stopped dead in my tracks when I saw the cookies. I can't wait to try out this recipe. Oh my! Nice job with the photography too.
