How to make it

  • Position racks in top and bottom third of oven and preheat to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Using electric mixer, beat first 4 ingredients, 1/4 tsp peppermint extract, and salt until fluffy. Add flour and mix well.
  • Place 1 cup powdered sugar in a bowl. Working with 1 level tablespoon at a time, shape dough into balls; roll in powdered sugar to coat. Place on sheet. Brush the bottom of a flat-bottomed cup with butter. Press each ball of dough lightly with the bottom of the cup. Sprinkle each with more powdered sugar, then press again to thin 3 1/4 inch round. Bake cookies for 8 minutes. Reverse sheets and bake until golden at edges, about 9 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, stir 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract and 2 tbsp cream in a small bowl until smooth. Add more cream by 1/2 tsp if the glaze is too thick to spread.
  • Spread glaze over warm cookies and sprinkle with sugar crystals, then transfer to rack to cool.
