Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Mocha Cookies

Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Cookies - 6

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Thanks to Pie Week here on Sugarcrafter, most of our desserts were done ahead of time, so I only had a couple things left to do on the big day. Thankfully, they all went pretty smoothly, and we all had a wonderful time catching up and enjoying the delicious food. Now that Thanksgiving is over though, I’m excited to get back to the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies. You may have noticed that I skipped last week in lieu of Pie Week, but I’m back today with a cookie that pairs perfectly with a popular holiday coffee drink. These aren’t even the usual soft, chewy cookie that I usually make…instead, they’re buttery, thin, and crispy, and perfect for dipping in coffee. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, and I hope you’re enjoying the beginning of the Christmas season!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the eggs.

  1. What a wonderful flavor combination – and brown sugar makes all cookies better. The extra caramel flavor and the chewier texture – necessary.

  11. Tracy, I LOVE your header and how you put the little Santa hat on the baker! Adorable. We just put up some Christmas lights and our tiny (very tiny) tree on Saturday, and it’s made me feel oh-so-festive.

  13. Where can you get espresso powder? Thx!

  14. Penny – I get mine in the coffee/tea aisle at the grocery store. Sometimes it is also called “instant espresso.” Hope that helps!
