Peppermint Blossoms

  • 3/4 cup butter, soft
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 30 mint kisses


  • 1 cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together.
  • In a separate bowl, combine salt, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and cornstarch together.
  • Add egg and vanilla to creamed butter.
  • Add flour mixture little by little until thoroughly incorporated.
  • On a cookie tray fitted with parchment paper, scoop 1 T size balls, roll them in sugar, and place on cookie sheet. Space them out 2 inches apart.

  • Let cool completely as kisses will melt- you may speed this along just by cooling it in the fridge.
