Does anyone have the recipe from Pampered Chef?

You take sugar cookie dough (from a tube) and peppermint extract (1/2 tsp.) and 3 tbsps. flour. Then you bake the cookie. When it comes out, you put white chocolate chips on top for the "frosting." Then, sprinkle on crushed peppermint from candy canes.

Anyone try these? Have the actual recipe? No kiddin'--they are divine!:santagrin:

I just did a recipe search on PC's website, but didn't come up with anything. Did you have this at a PC party? Maybe it's just a recipe that the consultant had--we sometimes will do that at shows.

Sounds awesome, though...I may have to try it!

Ok, let me see if I've got this right.

You're mixing the extract and flour with the prepared cookie dough. Then do you press it in a pan? And then put the chips & mints on top when it's all done?

Do I have that right - or at least close? That sounds :yum: !

What kind of cookie dough? Chocolate Chip? Sugar?


ETA:NM, I reread the OP.

It wasn't a PC party. I can get this recipe for you, girls. Don't you worry...I just have contact the person who brought these awesome cookies to the party. I know there are consultants here, so I wondered if anyone had it on hand.

Yes, it's plain sugar cookie dough, make it into a ball, add the extract and flour. Shape into a bar on the PC stone or cookie sheet. When it comes out of the oven, sprinkle the chips and they will melt, forming a frosting. Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy on top.:santagrin:

Oh, I bet they'd be good with chocolate chip cookie dough too, at least they sound like they would.

Here it is!!!!!

Candy Cane Bars

1 pks (20 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3 tbsps. flour

Topping:

1 pkg. (10 oz.) white chocolate chips
10-12 round peppermint candies or 1/4 cup crushed candy canes (I put them in a plastic ziploc bag and crush fine with a hammer)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cookie dough, extract and flour. Spread dough evenly into a big cookie on a baking stone or cookie sheet with a roller (floured if necessary). Bake approx. 20 mins. until golden brown. As cookie bakes, chop mints and nuts. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle white chips over cookie crust. Wait 2 to 3 mins., spread into thin layer like icing. Sprinkle with mints all over. Run serrated bread knife or spatula under crust to loosen. Cool at least 10 mins. Cut with pizza cutter into squares. Enjoy!

She didn't use nuts and it was delicious.

Let me know what you think, gals!:yum:

I am wondering how it would be with regular chocolate chips instead of the white ones. I am not fond of the white chocolate chips.

I found this recipe this morning before I checked the boards to see if someone else had posted the one that Mary was talking about.

Debbie, note they use chocolate chips in this one.:yum:

Trendy Peppermint Bars
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
5 drops red food coloring
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup finely crushed peppermint candy canes
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup coarsely chopped peppermint candy canes

Dough is similar to sugar cookie with peppermint added. Topped with melted chocolate and crushed candy canes. Makes 2 dozen.

Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9" x 13" pan. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, peppermint extract and food coloring. Add flour and salt till well blended. Stir in 2/3 cup finely crushed candy. Spread evenly into greased pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until firm.

After removing from oven, immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Cover with a cookie sheet for 1 minute or until melted. Spread chocolate evenly and sprinkle with 1/3 cup coarsely chopped candy. Cool completely before cutting. The treat may be baked in fancy cupcakes and decorated with quartered maraschino cherries or half a pecan.

I don't see why not!:lol: Did you know white chocolate really isn't chocolate? I just found that out recently, but don't remember the source.

You know what, I originally thought the chips were frosting but couldn't put my finger on what flavor. It really tasted peppermint-y. I think regular chocolate chips would be a more intense flavor. You could try it and see.

You inspired me...

this morning I made up a batch of sugar cookie dough, adding in 2 tsp. peppermint with 1 tsp. vanilla. I rolled the dough into a long roll and chilled it for a little while. Then I sliced the roll into cookies and baked as normal. Removed from oven, topped with two white chocolate melts, spread it a little and sprinkled with crushed candy cane ( I used the blender). They are so nice looking and are really super simple to make!

Thanks heaps for sharing the idea!

Donna, I'm glad you liked them! They would make great gifts in a tin or some sort of container.

Ok, I made up chocolate chip cookie dough batter minus the chocolate chips and then added peppermint extract and melted the vanilla chips on top with the peppermint candies & everyone loved them! Gee some of us sure do venture far from the original recipe! :roflol:

:lol: Janee, I saw it and could not believe that I'd missed such a GREAT thread all day today and suddenly BOOM, there were 4 pages :lol:

BTW, I've had this recipe, too. I might have even gotten it from here four years ago. I'd forgotten all about it, though. YUMMY!!!!! Something we might have to try later ...... :)
