Day 1 of my Christmas baking: Peppermint Snowballs

This recipe came from an Gold Medal recipe booklet. I tore the page out that has this recipe in it years ago.

1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 1/4 cup Gold Medal flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix 1/4 cup of crushed candy and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. This will be used to roll the cookies into when they come out of the oven.
Beat butter, 1/3 cup of powdered sugar, vanilla and the rest of the crushed peppermint candies. (1/4 cup)
Then mix in the flour and the salt.
Roll teaspoonfuls into 1 inch balls, place about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet and then bake for about 12-14 minutes.
When done baking, roll into powdered sugar mixture and let cool on rack. Wait about 10 minutes and reroll cookies in sugar mixture.

Ready to roll the baked cookies into the powdered sugar and peppermint candy mixture.
If you like peppermint it's a sure guarantee that you will like these.

I am done baking for today! It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
