Giada's Peppermint-Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
10 ingredients

I found this recipe on's 12 Days of Cookies 2008. Giada's Peppermint-Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are built around store bought sugar cookie dough, which makes it a great recipe to whip up with kids. These cookies have a chocolate-peppermint center and then are topped with chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint. Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentis. Please note: time does NOT include chill time.Update: I used a 2" round biscuit cutter and was able to get 20 cookies from the batch. I also found it easier to spread the melted chocolate on the top of the cookies with the back of a spoon than to dip the cookies into the chocolate.
