Peppermint Candy Short Bread Cookies

Makes 3 1/2 dozen

1 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. crushed peppermint candy
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1/4 c. cornstarch

Mix butter, sugar, crushed candy and vanilla thoroughly using an electric mixer. Gradually blend in flour and cornstarch. Form into 1 inch balls on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Gently press down on each cookie to flatten using fingers or a flat bottomed drinking glass (dipped in sugar to prevent sticking). Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until bottom begins to brown. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

1 c. confectioners sugar
1-2 T. milk
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 T. crushed peppermint candy
Combine confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla and mix until frosting is smooth. Drizzle cookies with frosting and sprinkle with crushed candy.
