Peppermint Snowballs

Makes 4 dozen

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3⁄4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1⁄4 cup candy cane, crushed
  • 12 -15 drops red food coloring
  • Powdered sugar, for rolling

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F

In large bowl, with mixer on high, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Beat in vanilla and salt. Reduce mixer speed to low, and beat in flour (dough will be very dry). Beat in oats, crushed candy canes, and 12-15 drops of red food coloring. Shape heaping teaspoons of dough into balls, place on ungreased baking sheets 1/2 inch apart, and bake 15 to 18 minutes per batch.

Place icing sugar in large bowl. Roll hot cookies in sugar, let cool completely, and repeat
