Peppermint Cookies

It's always the right time for cookies, but most people end up eating extra around the holidays. They're the perfect snack to bring to your aunt's house for Christmas.


1 1/4 C. crushed peppermint candy

1 1/3 C. granulated sugar, divided

3/4 C. butter

2 eggs

1 tsp. peppermint extract

3/4 tsp. vanilla extract

2 1/2 C. all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. salt


Crush the peppermint candies in 1/3 cup of the sugar until powdery.

Mix flour and salt together in a small bowl and set aside. Mix the butter, eggs, and remaining sugar together in a large bowl. Add in vanilla and peppermint extracts. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Form the dough into small balls. Roll the balls of dough in the crushed candy mixture and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes at 350F. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for one minute, remove, and roll in the candy sugar again. Let cool.
