Peppermint Petites

 by Land O'Lakes

1 c butter, softened
1/2 c sugar
1/2 t peppermint extract
3-4 drops red food color
2 c flour

1 c powdered sugar
1 T butter, softened
1 oz square unsweetened baking choc, melted
1-2 T milk crushed peppermints extract

1. Heat oven to 375. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in a large bowl. Beat at medium, scraping often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, beat until well mixed.
2. Shape into 1" balls. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-13 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Meanwhile..
3. Combine powdered sugar through chocolate in a small bowl. Beat at low adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.
4. Frost cookies. Sprinkle with crushed mints.

This is another recipe that was lost and just found. My notes say these cookies are delicious, but they need a little help in the presesntation department.
