Peppermint Bark Spritz Cookies -Chocolate Drizzled Candy Cane Christmas Spritz Cookies

These Peppermint Bark Spritz Cookies are my wink and nod to the best selling Christmas candy (and a very nice way to use up a few candy canes). I gave mine a light drizzle of chocolate so we could still see the pretty tree shapes, but you can certainly add more... You know your crowd:@) This is a nice variation of the Peppermint Spritz Cookies my son asks me to make every year. Goodie bags were requested! 

I found some chocolate cookie icing on the clearance isle and decided to give it a try...
Easy to use, dries so it's not sticky, and no clean-up ~Not bad!

While I used a round candy for the pics, I did use candy canes for the cookies.

Candy Cane/Peppermint Spritz Cookies
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C shortening
3/4 C sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
2 1/4 C A/P flour, sifted
1/2 tsp salt-I just used a little pinch
1/8 tsp baking powder
melted chocolate for drizzling
crushed candy canes to sprinkle on top, plan on about 3-4 candy canes for a full batch
  1. Cream butter, shortening and sugar.
  2. Mix in egg and extracts.
  3. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Fill press and form cookies onto cool, non-greased baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees 10-12 minutes or until cookies just begin to lightly brown at edges.
  6. Cool completely on baking rack.
  7. Add wax paper, tin foil, etc under rack for easy clean-up... Drizzle top of cookies with melted chocolate and immediately sprinkle with crushed candy canes. I only worked on a few cookies at a time.
  8. Let candy or icing harden back up, store in air tight container.
Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)

  2. Oh good!! Another spritz for me to try! They really look so pretty with the icing and crushed peppermints on top. I think I even gave peppermint extract.
