Linzer cookies are most often filled with jam, but this year we’re decking the halls with recipe developer Erin McDowell’s festive chocolate-peppermint sammies.
“These are like cookie texture meets brownie flavor,” McDowell tells us. “The center is made by melting peppermint candies into cream, then using that to make a whipped white chocolate ganache that’s light and soft.” And while McDowell says you’re welcome to add a drop of food coloring to make the filling more vibrantly pink, it’s actually tinted pink on its own from the candies. (One less step for you.)
“When you bake the cookies, they’re crisp,” she continues, “but as they sit, they get softer, so when you bite into them, they stay together.”

1. Begin the Filling: Place the peppermints in a large zip-top bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the peppermints into a relatively fine powder. Measure out ⅓ cup of the powder and set aside.
2. Place the remaining peppermint powder and the heavy cream in a small pot. Heat the mixture over low heat until the powder melts and the cream is very hot.
3. Place the white chocolate in a medium heat-safe bowl. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate. Let sit for 30 seconds, then stir until well combined. The mixture should be completely smooth—if it isn’t, heat it gently over a double boiler.
4. Stir in the salt. Transfer to a storage container and refrigerate until well chilled.
5. While the White Chocolate Cools, Make the Cookie Dough: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

6. In a small bowl,
whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt to combine. Add to the mixer and mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Thoroughly scrape down the side of the bowl, then mix again briefly on low speed to make sure everything is uniformly combined. Divide the dough in half and form each half into a 1-inch-thick disk. Wrap each disk tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (and up to overnight).
7. Position the oven racks in the upper and lower third of your oven, then preheat it to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
8. On a lightly floured surface (or between two sheets of parchment paper), roll out one portion of dough to ⅛ inch thick. Use a 2-inch round cookie cutter to cut the dough and then transfer each round to one of the prepared baking sheets. Repeat with the second disk of dough. Use a mini cookie cutter to cut a shape from the center of each cookie on the second tray; remove the cutouts.
9. Bake until the cookies are set at the edges, 8 to 10 minutes, rotating the trays between racks halfway through baking. Cool completely.
10. Finish the Filling: Transfer the cooled white chocolate mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk on medium speed until the mixture lightens, about 2 minutes. Add the cream in a slow, steady stream and continue to whisk until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and cut a ½-inch opening (or fit with a ½-inch-wide pastry tip).
11. Flip the cookies without cutouts over. Pipe the filling into the center of each cookie, leaving a ¼-inch border uncovered.
12. Sprinkle the reserved peppermint powder on top of the filling, then place one of the cookies with a cutout on top and press down slightly until the filling just reaches the edge of the cookies. Let set for 15 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
