Learn How it Works...
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup crushed mini candy canes or peppermint candies
1/4 cup sugar
Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
Combine 3/4 cup sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and peppermint extract in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir 1/4 cup crushed candy into dough.
Stir remaining 1/4 cup crushed candy into 1/4 cup sugar.
Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls; roll in sugar mixture. Place, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Do not overbake. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
To crush candy canes or peppermint candies, use a food processor or place candies into resealable plastic food bag; smash with rolling pin or bottom of heavy saucepan.
For a more sparkly effect, mix finely crushed candy canes with coarse grain sugar.
