Makes about 48

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coarsely crushed peppermint candy canes, divided

Preheat oven to 325 F. 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 greased and floured 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.

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. 4 stars
