Prep Time

Total Time



1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup buttermilk  

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda


1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2 to 3 tablespoons water


Hard peppermint candies, coarsely chopped

Holiday nonpareils and/or decorator candies


 *Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to equal 1/2 cup; let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar and salt in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add buttermilk, egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla; continue beating until mixed. Add flour and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-9 minutes or until cookies are set and bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to cooling racks; cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; stir in enough water for desired glazing consistency. Spread glaze over cooled cookies; sprinkle with decorator candies.

Tip #1

Freeze cookies before glazing to prevent moisture from collecting between cookies and frosted layers, which could create a soggy top surface. Glaze and decorate cookies after thawing.
