Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 36
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 3½ cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Beat the butter and sugars together in the bowl of a stand mixer, then add the eggs and beat until incorporated. On a lower setting, add the sour cream and extracts, using a spatula to make sure everything is well combined.
  3. Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt and add to the mixer a little at a time with the mixer on low speed. When everything is fully mixed, add the chocolate chips.
  4. Refrigerate the dough until lightly chilled, then use a quarter-cup ice cream scoop to portion onto silicone or parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on how soft you prefer the cookies. Cool slightly on baking sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
