These have a crispy, wafer-type, chocolaty-peppermint center and are coated in peppermint chocolate. So good!
1. For the cookies, stir together almond flour, arrowroot, cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking soda with a whisk until there are no more lumps. Set aside.
2. Beat butter until creamy. Then add sugar and beat until well mixed.
3. Beat in the egg and peppermint.
4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until dough comes together.
5. Pour dough onto plastic wrap and shape into a cylinder 1 1/2″ inches in diameter. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes.
6. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
7. Remove from freezer and cut into 1/4″ thick cookies. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake in batches if needed.
8. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
9. Cool completely.
10. For the coating, place chocolate chips and shortening in a heatproof bowl. Bring a small pot of water to a simmer. Place the bowl with the chocolate chips on top being careful that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in the peppermint extract.
11. Use a fork to dip the cookies into the chocolate, allowing the excess chocolate to drip off. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
12. Place in fridge uncovered until chocolate has set up, about 30 minutes.
13. Eat and enjoy!
