Chocolate Peppermint Shortbread

Christmas is almost here! This is an easy and delicious way to reward yourself for all of your hard work this year (or perfect for a last-minute party or guest). As an added bonus, your entire kitchen will smell like peppermint!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/3 cup Andes peppermint baking bits

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 (9-inch) glass pie plate with cooking spray.
In large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in flour and cocoa. Stir in peppermint baking bits. Press dough evenly in pie plate.
Bake 22 to 24 minutes or until edges just begin to pull away from sides of pie plate. Cool in pie plate for 5 minutes. Cut into 16 wedges.
Yields 16 servings.
