How To Make Copycat Milano Cookies

In a small bowl, combine the baking soda and vinegar. Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix until the mixture is fluffy and creamy. Then add the egg and baking soda/vinegar, flour and salt.
Transfer the dough to plastic wrap and shape into a disk; chill for 30 minutes. Then cut dough into rounds and transfer the cut dough to prepared baking sheets. 
Bake cookies at 350°F for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and completely cool before icing.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave on HIGH until melted and creamy.  When the cookies have cooled, spread with melted chocolate and sprinkle with crushed peppermints.
