  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and peppermint extracts. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until all of the dry has been absorbed. Mix in the chocolate chunks and chopped candy cane. Form spoonfuls of dough into balls, and place them 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven.

This was not as tasty as I wanted and it was tough to make. You have to get the candy canes small or they melt all over and ruin it. It also stuck to the pan real bad. It was ok but could have b...

Few tips: REMOVE IMMEDIATELY means "immediately!" These have candy (canes) in them and will stick to your pan like crazy. Be generous with the non-stick spray. Crush candy canes pretty finely...

Loren's right--we've decided this cookie will be made every Christmas! My kids loved crushing the candy cane (I double ziplocked them). I only made a couple of changes as suggested by other revi...
