    Peppermint Swirl Refrigerator Cookies


    Recipe Description
    Very holiday-appropriate; swirls of white and pink; tastes very similar to a sugar cookie
    Preparation Steps:
    Leave butter out to soften
    Level of Difficulty:
    Medium
    Time Needed:
    1 hour (+ min 9 hours chilling time)
    Ingredients:
    1 c. butter, softened
    1 c. sugar
    1 egg
    2 T. milk
    3 c. flour
    1/2 t. baking soda
    1/4 t. salt
    1/2 t. peppermint extract
    4-5 drops red food colouring
    1/4 c. pink sugar (optional)
    Serves:
    6 dozen
    Directions:
    In large bowl, combine butter, sugar, egg, milk, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy.
    In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix well.
    Place half of dough in plastic bag or wrap. To remaining dough, add peppermint extract and red food colouring. (I added about 10 drops.) Mix well. Place in plastic bag or wrap.
    Refrigerate both portions for one hour.

    Divide each portion in half. Roll one part white dough into a 10x8" rectangle between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Set aside. Repeat with pink dough.

    Remove top sheet of plastic wrap from white and pink doughs. Place pink dough over white dough. Remove second sheet of plastic wrap from pink dough. Trim edges, if desired. Starting at long edge, roll up, jelly roll fashion, removing plastic wrap from bottom as dough is rolled. Repeat with remaining dough to form two rolls.

    OPTIONAL: Place 2 T. of pink sugar on separate sheet of plastic wrap. Roll dough in pink sugar, pressing gently.

    Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 8 hours or up to one week.

    Heat oven to 375F. Slice cookies 1/8" thick. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 5-7 minutes. Cool 1 minute; remove from sheets. Cool completely.

    I'm pretty choosy about what goes into my cookie platters.

    That looks great. I might have to try them tonight. My daughter has to bring in snack tomorrow. I think I need hubby to stop and get some peppermint extract though. Thanks for the recipe gal.

    1/4 c. pink sugar (optional)

    Is this something new? Does sugar come in colors now?

    Yes, sometimes I've seen it advertised as "sanding" sugar. I didn't use it, because I didn't have any in pink. You could use plain old white sugar, as well, if you like.
