Love peppermint candy? Here's a buttery cookie to complete your sweet satisfaction.

Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
container (12 oz) Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
1
teaspoon peppermint extract
Betty Crocker™ red decorating sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg and flour until dough forms. Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass.
  • 2 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 3 In small bowl, mix frosting and peppermint extract. Spread each cookie with frosting. Using small spoon, sprinkle red sugar onto cookies in spiral design to look like peppermint candies.

Expert Tips

Spoon sugar into a resealable plastic bag; snip off a corner and squeeze to sprinkle over frosted cookies.

Use green sugar for the red, if you'd like.
