  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter or margarine, confectioner's sugar, flour and peppermint extract. Mix well.
  3. Separate dough into two equal parts, put into separate bowls and tint with food-coloring. Roll dough into SMALL balls, approximately 1/2 tsp per cookie. Place six balls in a circle, alternating colors onto cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. NOTE: I guess you could omit peppermint flavoring or substitute it, but we like peppermint, so I have not tried variations or substitutions .

Easy and very tasty! Let the kids make their own cookies in the shape of presents, trees, christmas ornaments, etc.

I LOVE this recipe! this will be my third year making it and I don't know how I existed before it! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

They are really easy to make. Kind of bland though so I would suggest adding more peppermint extract or sprinkle, something that gives it more flavor.

I made these years ago and they were great. Something must have changed in the recipe since because these were bland, difficult to roll, and dry af. Definitely not the same recipe. Simply awful
