PEPPERMINT SNOWBALL COOKIE RECIPE


I thought I'd post a few recipes this week. This one looks really good.
I haven't made any of these yet, but I sure want to try them. 
There was a typo in the recipe. It should have read "2 to 2 1/4 cups flour".
I hope that didn't cause any problems. It's been corrected.

PEPPERMINT SNOWBALLS

Ingredients:1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
10 starlight mints, crushed (heaping 1/4 cup)
Red food coloring
Confectioners' sugar for rolling

Directions:1. Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, with mixer on high, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla and salt. Reduce mixer speed to low, and beat in flour (dough will be very dry). Beat in oats, mints, and 12 drops of red food coloring. Shape heaping teaspoons of dough into balls, place on ungreased baking sheets 1/2 inch apart, and bake 15 to 18 minutes per batch.
2. Place confectioners' sugar in large bowl. Roll hot cookies in confectioners' sugar, let cool completely, and repeat.
