Dessert works really well with Cream Sherry, Port Wine, and Moscato d'Asti. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. One wine you could try is NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees f. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add 12 T. butter and sugar to the work bowl of a stand mixer. Using the mixer's paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, anywhere from 3-6 minutes (alternately you can mix the dough by hand too.) Beat in the cream cheese, then the egg, vanilla and peppermint extracts. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  3. Measure dough out into 1 1/2 teaspoon portions, rolling into little balls between your palms. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on the baking sheet, dividing the cookies between the two baking sheets. Dipping your thumb in a little water, press your thumb into the dough balls to make the thumbprint. Bake the cookies - one sheet at a time. For 10 minutes, until the cookies are just set and barely beginning to brown at the edges. Remove cookie sheet from the oven, using a metal teaspoon, re-indent the cookies. Continue baking the cookies until they're light golden-brown, about 10 minutes longer. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before filling. Repeat baking steps with the second cookie sheet.
  4. To fill the cookies: Add chocolate chips, cream and butter to a small bowl. Microwave for 40 seconds until the chocolate chips are just melted, stir (continue to microwave in 10 second increments if needed). Add the corn syrup and peppermint extract, mix well. Spoon a generous 1/2 t. of chocolate into each cookie. Immediately add the sprinkles (if using).
