Ingredients

Cookies

1
cup powdered sugar
1
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
cups all-purpose flour
1/2
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1
teaspoon vanilla

Topping

1 1/2
cups white vanilla baking chips
2
tablespoons shortening
1/2
cup coarsely chopped round peppermint candies (about 20)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat powdered sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, cocoa and vanilla until well blended.
  • 2 On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 3/8-inch thickness. Cut with floured 1 1/4-inch triangular cookie cutter or cut by hand with sharp knife. Place 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until firm to the touch. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
  • 4 Line cookie sheets with waxed paper. In small saucepan, place vanilla baking chips and shortening; cook and stir over low heat until melted and smooth.
  • 5 To make each tree, dip 1 edge of 1 cookie triangle into melted chip mixture; place on cookie sheet. Dip 1 edge of second triangle into melted chip mixture; place uncoated corner over coated edge of first triangle. Dip 1 edge of third triangle into melted chip mixture; place uncoated corner over coated edge of second triangle to form tree. Repeat with remaining cookie triangles.
  • 6 Drizzle remaining coating over completed trees; sprinkle with chopped candy.
