Candy Cane Puffs
2 1/2 cups
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 (1 ounce) squares white chocolate, melted
1/2 cup finely crushed candy canes
Stir together flour and salt in a medium-size bowl. Beat butter and
confectioners' sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in egg. Mix
in peppermint extract and vanilla extract. Beat in flour mixture. Cover dough
with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for
10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove cookies to wire
racks to cool completely.
To coat, brush each cookie with melted white chocolate; dip lightly in crushed
candy canes. Place on wax paper to harden.
