    Ingredients:

    Serves: 72

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium-high spped for 1 minute. Reduce speed to medium-low, and add egg and then yolk, beating well after each addition. Beat in peppermint extract. Slowly add flour mixture, and beat until just incorporated. Shape dough into 2 disks, wrap each in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days).
    2. 2
      Roll out 1 disk of dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Using a 2 inch round cutter, cut out circles, and place 1 inch apart on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roll and cut scraps onces. Freeze cookies until firm, about 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining disk.
    3. 3
      Bake until the cookies are dry to the touch, about 12 minutes. Transfer parchment, with cookies, to wire racks, and let cool.
    4. 4
      Sift crushed cany, and separate larger pieces from dust, reserving both. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of gently simmering water. Remove from heat. Dunk cookies into melted chocolate. Using a fork, turn to coat, let excess drip off, and gently scrape bottom agains edge of bowl. Place on parchment lined baking sheets, and sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of either candy pieces or dust on top. Repeat, sprinkling half of the cookies with dust and half with candy pieces. Refrigerate until set, up to 3 hours. Decorated cookies are best served the same day.

      This recipe ended up being easier than I had anticipated. They also turned out very pretty. Lastly, they tasted great too! I followed the recipe exactly except the copy of the recipe I have said 325 degrees. Thanks for posting.
