    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 400°F
    2. 2
      In large bowl, with mixer on high, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Beat in vanilla and salt. Reduce mixer speed to low, and beat in flour (dough will be very dry). Beat in oats, crushed candy canes, and 12-15 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.
    4. 4
      Place icing sugar in large bowl. Roll hot cookies in sugar, let cool completely, and repeat.

      I made these as written except at 350 for 12 minutes. 4 candy canes looked like about the right amount. Did not get to putting in sugar when really hot - maybe 10 minutes. Probably could roll in powdered sugar again now that they are cold. I thought they would need extra peppermint extract but I didn't have any and they turned out great. Made 60 cookies. Half a cookie scoop size.

      Very festive and pretty! I added 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract as some reviewers suggested. Rolling hot cookies in the sugar does create a pretty glaze. I've also dusted the cooled cookies with extra powdere sugar.

      This is very similar to my almond snowballs, so I set the oven to 350* and the timer for 15 and they came out just fine. I added 1/2 tsp. of peppermint extract at some others' suggestions and it made them just minty enough. I also added some red sanding sugar to my confectioners sugar for rolling and it gave them a very festive look. This is a fine recipe. Thanks for posting.
