Buttermint Cookies

Oh, yummmm! The tender melty taste of real live butter-mints, only in a cookie. No lie. The first bite is such a surprise–you may need to prepare for a mild addiction…of a sort.

One batch was just not quite enough–

at least for us.

So plan accordingly.

Buttermint Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
Pastel colored sugar

Directions:

In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in extract. Gradually add flour and mix well.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten with a glass dipped in colored sugar—think Easter colors. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Yield: 3 dozen.

  1. These were sooo much different than other cookies I tried… such a neat texture. Not crumbly… but melty-ish. They ARE like buttermints. 🙂
