• Peppermint Ammonia Cookies

November 12, 2017

Have you ever heard of Peppermint Ammonia Cookies? We hadn't either until a number of years ago when our customers were looking for Baker's Ammonia. We found it for them (of course!) and now we sell a TON of it every Christmas when people bake these cookies. If you're looking to try something new this year, this might be a good recipe to try! They are super delish!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/8 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons bakers' ammonia (ammonium bicarbonate)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions:

1/2 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1 cup heavy cream 3 eggs, beaten 1/8 cup boiling water 1 1/2 tablespoons bakers' ammonia (ammonium bicarbonate) 1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in the heavy cream and beaten eggs. Mix the ammonia into the boiling water and stir to dissolve; stir into the butter mixture along with the peppermint oil. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter until evenly blended. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are golden. Cool slightly on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
