Course: Hand-Shaped CookiesDifficulty: Easy



A simple oat cookie topped with crushed candy canes or peppermint candies.


  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 1-1/4 cup powdered sugar, divided

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1-1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup coarsely crushed peppermint candy canes, divided


  • Preheat oven to 325 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper (these cookies WILL stick to the pan if you don’t use parchment or a silicone baking mat). In large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and 1 cup powdered sugar until creamy; beat in vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flour, oats and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly. Add 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candies; mix until well combined. Roll dough into 3/4″ balls, then roll in remaining 1/4 cup sugar to coat. Place balls about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten cookies with fork, making a crisscross pattern with fork tines. Sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon crushed peppermint candies. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets 2 to 3 minutes; transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

Really good. Did not stick with the parchment paper as some complained about. Pretty sure those people didn't use the parchment paper!

Our first Christmas together, my husband begged me to learn this recipe from my mother-in-law. Now I make them every Christmas and I love sharing this unique cookie with my friends and co-workers. My husband even told me last year that my cookies were better than his mother's!

This recipe was amazing! Some people said that it was hard to get it off the pan so we used parchment paper and it worked like a charm.
- Smart Cookie

candy sticks around the cookie very hard to get off the cookie sheet even with greasing and flouring..Crisps are hard but not bad taste
- A Baker
