Ingredients

Choose your measure:

Dough

Glaze

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup

Topping

  • 1/2 cup peppermint crunch or crushed peppermint candies or candy canes

Instructions

  1. To make the dough: In a medium bowl, beat together the sugar, butter, salt, and vanilla. Add the flour, stirring to make a cohesive dough.
  2. Pat the dough out on a piece of wax paper or parchment to a rectangle 9" long by 6" wide. Cover with plastic, and chill on a flat surface for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with parchment.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and, trim the edges so they're straight. Divide the rectangle in half lengthwise to make two 9" x 3" strips of dough. Cut each strip of dough into 3/4" x 3" slices. Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake the sticks for 12 to 15 minutes, until they feel firm when pressed. Remove them from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool.
  6. To make the glaze: Melt chocolate and butter together, stirring constantly. Stir in the corn syrup.
  7. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cookies and sprinkle with peppermint crunch. Place on a rack to allow the glaze to set.
