Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies

Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies are slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes, they're the perfect holiday cookie.

Ingredients • all-purpose flour • baking powder • fine sea salt • unsalted butter • granulated sugar • egg • vanilla extract • chocolate chips • coconut oil • crushed candy canes

Step 1 In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Set aside.

Step 2 In a large bowl using a mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. On low speed, mix in the dry ingredients until just combined.

Step 3 Separate the dough into 2 then wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or up to 24 hours. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let sit until it's just warm enough to roll out, about 5 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Step 3 (continued) Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface using a rolling pin until it's ¼" thick (or slightly less). Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut into shapes and place 1 inch apart on 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Re-roll the remaining dough and cut into shapes.

Step 4 Bake 10-12 minutes until the cookies are set and just barely beginning to turn brown on the edges.

Step 5 Let the cookies cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely. In a bowl, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Dip each cookie into the chocolate. Place on a parchment lined surface. Sprinkle crushed candy cane over the chocolate.
