Description

These are just like the oatmeal lace cookies, with that cool taste of peppermint. Great with a hot cup of tea.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup crushed peppermint candies
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon very finely crushed peppermint candies, or as needed
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 2. Beat butter and 1 cup confectioners' sugar in a large bowl until creamy and smooth; stir peppermint extract into butter mixture. Whisk flour and salt in a bowl and stir into butter mixture. Gently fold rolled oats and 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candies into the dough.
  3. 3. Drop dough by teaspoonful onto ungreased baking sheets, leaving 3 inches between cookies; press cookies 1/4 inch thick with your fingertips.
  4. 4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies have lightly browned edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheets for at least 5 minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.
  5. 5. Stir 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar with 1 tablespoon very finely crushed peppermint candies in a small bowl; transfer to a fine-mesh wire strainer. Dust cooled cookies with peppermint candy mixture.
