  • 1 cup Giant Eagle all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Hershey's natural unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp. Clabber Girl® double acting baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cup Giant Eagle granulated sugar
  • 2 Giant Eagle large eggs
  • 1 tsp. McCormick® pure peppermint extract
  • ¼ cup Giant Eagle pure vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Giant Eagle powdered confectionary sugar, for coating the cookies


  Prep Time: 10 min. + 2 hrs. chilling • Cook Time: 10 min.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until combined. Set aside.

In a separate bowl of a stand mixer, add the granulated sugar, eggs, peppermint extract and oil. Beat on medium-high speed for 2 minutes, or until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then gradually add the flour mixture and beat on medium-low speed until combined.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or up to 24 hours) until the dough is chilled completely through.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Fill a small bowl with powdered sugar.

Form the dough into 1-inch round balls. Dip each dough ball in the powdered sugar until it is completely covered on all sides, and then place them at least 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes. Then remove the baking sheet from the oven, and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let them cool until they reach room temperature.
