I actually made this cookie recipe for the 7th grade bake sale and decided to name it after my dog Gizzy (mostly because she keeps sneaking them).

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix butter, sugar, crushed candies and vanilla extract thoroughly using an electric mixer. Gradually blend in flour and cornstarch.
  2. Form into 1-inch balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Gently press down on each cookie to flatten with fingertips or a flat-bottomed drinking glass (dipped in confectioners sugar to prevent sticking).
  3. Bake in a preheated 300°F oven for 25-30 minutes,or until bottoms begin to brown.
  4. Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, vanilla, and peppermint extract; mix until frosting is smooth.
  5. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely. When the cookies have finished cooling, drizzle with frosting and sprinkle with crushed candies. ENJOY!
