Peppermint Wands

I got this recipe years ago and I always love making it every year during Christmas. These are crunchy cookies but they taste great with the German sweet chocolate and the crushed peppermint candies.
Peppermint Wands
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 12 oz german sweet chocolate, melted
  • crushed peppermint candies

line a baking sheet with foil. mix flour and salt. beat butter and sugar in a bowl until fluffy. add vanilla. beat in flour mixture. refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. heat oven to 350 degrees.

roll one teaspoon of dough into 2 1/2 inch long log. place on prepared baking sheet. repeat with the remaining dough. bake for 10-12 minutes. remove cookies to racks to cool.

dip end of each cookie into chocolate. place on wax paper. sprinkle dipped ends with candy. refrigerate 20 minutes.
