Giant Peppermint-White Chocolate Cookie

This was what I made my husband on his birthday, instead of cake.  I also made some White Chocolate-Peppermint Ice Cream to top it off with.  It was a delicious combination!  I do want to try this recipe as individual cookies sometime, but no time for that this year!  :)


Giant Peppermint-White Chocolate Cookie
adapted from Closet Cooking

1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
1/2 cup peppermint candy cane, crushed (crush 4-5 canes inside a ziplock, using a meat mallet)
1.  Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a 10 or 11-inch pie or tart pan with parchment.  Grease the sides of the pan. 

2.  Mix the butter and sugars in a bowl.  Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.  Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl.  Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.  Mix in the chocolate and the peppermint candy cane.

3.  Spread dough into prepared pan.  Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown, about 12-20 minutes.  Test for doneness- underbake just slightly so it is soft and chewy.  Let cool and serve with ice cream.
