1 1/4 cups crushed peppermint candy
1 1/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
3/4 cup butter
1 t peppermint extract
3/4 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 t salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grind or crush the peppermint candies in
1/3 cup of the sugar until powdery--a few
tiny pieces are okay. 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 flour mixture
1/3 at a time. Form the dough into small
balls, about an inch wide. Roll the balls
of dough in the crushed candy mixture and
place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake
for 8 minutes Allow cookies to cool on
baking sheet for one minute, remove and
roll them in the candy sugar again.
Cool on wax paper.
