Smile Chocolate And Peppermint Cookie Coins

COOKING TIME
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours and 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

11⁄2 sticks (3⁄4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp baking soda
1⁄2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
21⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1⁄2 tsp peppermint extract
Liquid green food color
4 oz each red and green nonpareils, or coarse (crystal) sugar


PREPARATION

1. Beat butter, baking soda, salt, sugar and eggs in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed until creamy. On low speed, beat in 2 cups flour until just blended.

2. Remove 11⁄2 cups dough to a medium bowl; stir in vanilla and cocoa until no white streaks remain. Stir peppermint extract and remaining 1⁄2 cup flour into dough in large bowl. Add about 10 drops food color. Beat until no white streaks remain. Cover doughs; refrigerate 30 minutes, or until firm.

3. Roll chocolate dough into a fat log. Divide in quarters. Working with 1 portion dough at a time (wrap and refrigerate rest), roll into a 3⁄4-in.-thick rope. Spread red nonpareils on a sheet of wax paper. Roll rope into nonpareils to coat; wrap rope in foil. Repeat with remaining chocolate dough, then the green dough and green nonpareils. Place ropes on a baking sheet; refrigerate at least 2 hours, or until firm enough to slice neatly.

4. Heat oven to 350F. Have baking sheet(s) ready.

5. Slice 1 rope at a time into 1⁄4-in.-thick rounds. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheet(s). Bake 8 to 10 minutes until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.



Planning Tip: Can be prepared through Step 3 up to 2 weeks ahead. Store baked cookies airtight at room temperature up to 3 weeks, or freeze up to 3 months.
