Peppermint Melt Away Cookie Recipe:
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
2 or 3 drops red food coloring (optional)
2 to 3 tablespoons milk or light cream
1 1/2 cups powdered (confectioner’s) sugar
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies or candy canes
In a medium bowl, combine butter, peppermint extract, food coloring (if desired), and powdered sugar; stir until well mixed. NOTE: Additional milk may be needed to get the frosting thin enough.
NOTE: After making many batches of Peppermint Frosting, I now thin the frosting with additional milk or water and dip the top of the cookie into it. This technique is much faster and easier.
