Chocolate Mint Cookies

Chocolate Mint Cookies
Filled with Raspberry Jam


1 cup Flour

1/2 cup Cocoa
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 Unsalted Butter, Softened
3/4 cup White Sugar
1 large Egg
1 Egg Yolk
3/4 tsp.Pure Peppermint Extract

Whisk together Flour, Cocoa Powder, Baking Soda, Baking Powder and Salt in a bowl.. set aside...

Beat Butter and Sugar with a mixer on Medium Speed for 1 minute

Reduce speed and add egg, then egg yolk beating well after each addition

Beat in Peppermint Extract

Slowly add Flour mixture and beat just until incorporated

Shape in 2 disks and wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hr. (or up to 2 days)

Roll out dough and cut out cookies. place on parchment lined cookie sheets

Return to fridge and leave 15 mins more so cookies will not lose their shape when cooking.

Cook 325 deg for 10-12 mins or until dry to touch

Cookies will keep 3 days in fridge undecorated. They freeze well also

I fill mine with Raspberry Jam (My favorite is Bonne Maman Raspberry Jam ) It is also available seedless...

I used my new Cookie Cutters I bought at Maxi Plus..
