LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, 1/2 cup butter, the vanilla, egg and unsweetened chocolate with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour and salt.
  • 2 Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart. Press each with greased bottom of drinking glass dipped into sugar until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 3 Bake about 8 minutes or until set. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4 In medium bowl, mix all frosting ingredients until smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over each cookie to within 1/4 inch of edge.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Make short work of crushing hard peppermint candies by placing them in a large food-storage plastic bag, chilling in the freezer, then lightly pounding candies inside the bag with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a small pot.

Use a spring-handled ice cream scoop to drop the dough onto the cookie sheet. Cookies will be the same size so they'll bake evenly.
