Step 1:

Sift together dry ingredients: flour, cocoa baking soda and salt.

Step 3:

Add dry ingredients slowing into the butter mixture.  I use a large serving spoon and add a few scoops and incorporate before adding more.  Once these are all combined add the peppermint chips.

Step 4:

Drop by the rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Mine tend to be larger than a teaspoon, but all good.  If you make them larger, you may have to cook slightly longer.

Step 5:

Bake for 8 to 9 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Remove and let sit on the cookie sheet until set then let cool on a cooling rack.  Should make about 4 1/2 dozen
