I love this recipe. It is only because we don't live near any of you all that I'm willing to share. Otherwise you'd be receiving it on a plate with some other goodies. These melt in your mouth. Merry Christmas!
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 sticks of salted butter
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
(cream together) then add
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
(Mix well then refrigerate for 1 hour)
Oven at 350- shape dough in teaspoon sized balls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute then transfer to cool.
Top with glaze and sprinkle crushed candy cane
I use a buttercream frosting recipe and add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract instead of vanilla and 2 to 3 drops of red food coloring.
Makes 30 cookies
