I love this recipe. It is only because we don't live near any of you all that I'm willing to share. Otherwise you'd be receiving it on a plate with some other goodies. These melt in your mouth. Merry Christmas!
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 sticks of salted butter
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
(cream together) then add
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
(Mix well then refrigerate for 1 hour)
Oven at 350- shape dough in teaspoon sized balls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute then transfer to cool.
Top with glaze and sprinkle crushed candy cane
I use a buttercream frosting recipe and add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract instead of vanilla and 2 to 3 drops of red food coloring.
Makes 30 cookies

Look at how cute this is!!!!!! Look! Yeah, I'm a little excited. My friend made this for me for my half bath in the manor. I've been running around trying to find pins or nails to hang it, but decided I couldn't wait to take a picture and share so I put it someplace flat for photos. I'm all jazzed up. Tee Hee

1 cup salted butter
(cream those together)
1 4oz chocolate baking bar melted
(I used the Ghiardelli 60% cacoa bittersweet chocolate
Add to creamed mixture)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
(Mix it all up until fluffy)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
(Gradually add to creamed mixture)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spoon about a teaspoon and a half into sprayed muffin pans. Bake for 10 to13 min. depending on oven (I'm still fighting with mine) When you take out the baked cookies, take the handle part of a wooden spoon and make a hole in the top of each. Immediately fill with peanut butter chips and let cool. To top off the cookie melt 1 cup of choc. chips in the microwave add a little oil to get the right smoothness and dollop some choc. goo on the top to hide the peanut butter chips. Enjoy!!

Prince 2 sits at the entry of the kitchen where he can see the front and back door so depending on where Soulmate comes in Prince 2 can be the first to greet him. He starts his watch about an hour before Soulmate comes home and just sits very still with ears twitching for the sound of Soulmates car. Oh to be loved like that!
