Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies

Each Christmas my mom, grandmother and I bake dozens of cookies to give as gifts, leave for Santa or, more realistically, devour the second they are out of the oven. Of all the cookies we bake, the type that seems to go the fastest is my mom’s Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies. They are crisp on the outside and gooey, almost brownie-like, on the inside. The cookies are extremely chocolatey with just the right amount of peppermint refreshment. Try baking some this holiday season using your Farmer Owned ingredients and they might become your favorite holiday cookie too! read more
