Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Place butter
and sugar in large bowl of electric stand mixer and beat until light
in color. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low
speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from
the side of the bowl.
Divide the dough in half and add chocolate and vanilla to 1 half
and incorporate with hands. Add egg yolk, peppermint extract, and
crushed candy to other half of dough and incorporate with hands.
Cover both with plastic and chill for approximately 5 minutes.
Roll out doughs separately to approximately 1/4-inch thickness.
Place peppermint dough on top of chocolate and press together
around the edges. Using waxed paper or flexible cutting board
underneath, roll dough into log. Wrap in waxed paper and
refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Remove dough from the refrigerator and cut into 1/2-inch
slices. Place cookies 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet,
parchment, or silicone baking mat and bake for 12 to 13
minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking time.
Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes,
then move to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight
container for up to 1 week.
