Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup finely crushed peppermint candies (12 candies)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely crushed peppermint candies (12 candies)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Mix 1/4 cup crushed candies and 1/4 cup powdered sugar; reserve. Mix butter, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup crushed candies and the vanilla in medium bowl. Stir in flour and salt.
  • 2
    Shape dough by level measuring tablespoonfuls into balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; roll in reserved candy mixture. Cool completely on wire rack. Roll in candy mixture again.

  • Make short work of crushing hard peppermint candy. Place candy in a large plastic food-storage bag, and chill in the freezer. Crush candy inside of the bag by lightly pounding with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a small pot.
  • We recommend using butter in this recipe for the most tender cookies.
