Peppermint Meltaways

Here is a blog worthy recipe (if you like peppermint). After searching for safe cookie recipes for Brody, trying some out (YUCK!!!! YUCK and MORE YUCK!), this one is worth sharing with you :)

Peppermint Meltaways

This recipe is free of milk, eggs, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish


1 cup of safe butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp safe vanilla extract

1 1/4 safe flour (or regular if you can use it)

1/2 cup corn starch

Glaze Ingredients

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons safe butter, softened

1/4 teaspoon safe peppermint extract

1 to 2 tablespoons rice milk (or soy milk)

safe candy canes or hard peppermint candy, crushed


Combine safe butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon safe vanilla extract in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and cornstarch. Beat until mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (30-60 minutes).

Shape rounded teaspoons of dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely

Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies. To make glaze, combine powdered sugar, safe butter, peppermint extract and enough safe milk for desired glazing consistency in small bowl. Immediately sprinkle with safe crushed candy.
