Christmas Wreaths Recipe
- 1 ¼ cups butter
- ¾ cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract
- 3 drops red food coloring
- 3 drops green food coloring
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: Cream together the butter or margarine, confectioner's sugar, flour and peppermint extract. Mix well.
step 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.
step 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 .
