Disclosure: I received a Cake Boss Baking cookie sheet to try for this recipe but all sparkly opinions and the recipe are my own.
Before you know it, it will be time for making holiday cookies and who doesn’t want to bake like a boss? How about baking like THE Boss? Buddy the Cake Boss! Even better, right? Buddy who has probably forgotten more about baking cakes and cookies than I’ll ever know is launching a new bake ware line called what else, Cake Boss Baking! I got a chance to try out one of his cookie sheets (TBH I bake way better cookies than my asymmetrical cakes) and had fun using it and coming up with a homemade cookie recipe that is holiday ready. Even more fun I get to give away one of the cookie sheets to one lucky winner so they can do their holiday baking like a boss!
I received the 11×14 cookie pan. It was made of heavy duty non-stick material so I don’t think it will warp and go wonky like some of my other cookie sheets. I liked the red non-slip grips on either end of the pan.
The cookies just slid right off the non-stick material but my favorite thing about the pan was these drop zones that tell you exactly what size and where to put the cookies for them to come out perfectly!
I used the cookie sheet to make this homemade cookie recipe for Peppermint Sugar Cookies.
- ⅔ cup butter flavor shortening
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1½ cup all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon peppermint coffee creamer (I used Bailey's White Chocolate Peppermint Bark.)
- 10 peppermints crushed into fine pieces
- Optional: peppermint to top each cookie
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Spray Cake Boss cookie sheet with non stick baking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl cream butter flavored shortening and sugar.
- Mix in egg.
- Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
- Stir into the mixing bowl.
- Add vanilla and peppermint creamer.
- Blend ingredients thoroughly one last time.
- Scoop tablespoons of dough evenly spaced onto cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle a few peppermint pieces on top of each cookie.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- If desired when you remove cookies from oven place whole peppermint to top each cookie.
- NOTE: Peppermint chips will melt in oven and may pool at base of cookie but the crystalized sugar can be easily broken off.
- If you choose to add the peppermints to top the cookies serve them the same day they are baked or the mints will become sticky.
FYI: To crush my peppermints I placed them in a ziploc bag and crushed them with a meat mallet.
These cookies were so good! The creamer and the crushed candy gave just a hint of mint to the traditional sugar cookie which was moist and sweet. I can’t wait to make these again for the holidays and have them in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate!
