Peppermint Meltaways

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup corn starch

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP butter, softened
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1-2 TBSP milk
food coloring (red/green) if desired
candy canes or crushed candy (we used peppermint kisses crushed up...OH SO GOOD!)

1. Combine butter, powdered sugar and peppermint extract in large bowl. Beat at medium, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low, add flour and cornstarch. Beat will until mixed. Refrigerate until firm (30-60 mins).
2. Shape into 1-inch balls, bake 2 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350F, 12-15 mins, or until edges slightly browned. Let stand 1 min, remove from sheets and cool completely.

Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies (we dipped the tops of the balls in the bowl of glaze). Sprinkle with crushed candies. YUMMY.
