Peppermint Snowballs

This is a plate of yummy goodness right here. You want yummy goodness? You must be willing to make a big mess.
To consume 2 sticks of butter and visit your local Williams and Sonoma store or spend a day crushing small candy canes?

You must be willing to roll dough over and over and get it all under your fingernails!

Then, you must wait 11-13 minutes when you are just dying to dig in!

You don't have to be willing to share, but I recommend it. Someone once shared these with me. I promise these cool, refreshing, buttery little balls of Christmas are worth it!
Here is the recipe just for you- make them for Christmas, New Years, your next party, or anytime really. They are that good!

Peppermint Snowballs
Heat oven to 325.
Mix 1 cup butter, 1/4 cup crushed peppermints, 1/3 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Add 2 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Mix well.
Shape into balls and bake at 325 for 11-13 minutes.
Let cool slightly and roll in powdered sugar and crushed peppermints. Cool and roll again, just for fun!
