I believe this was a 1984 Indiana State Fair Archway Cookie Contest winner. An odd combination but very good.

Serves:
3-4 dozen
Prep:
35 Min

Ingredients

2 c
sifted cake flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
butter (do not substitute)
1 c
lite brown sugar, firmly packed
1
egg
2 c
quick oats
1/2 c
crushed peppermint candy (about 20 pieces)

GLAZE

1 1/2 c
powdered sugar
3 Tbsp
milk
3 Tbsp
finely crushed peppermint candy (about 4-6)

Step-By-Step

1Cream butter and sugar and then add egg.

2Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add to butter and sugar mixture.

3Add quick oats and candy. Batter will be stiff

4Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper if you have it… it really helps as the candy tends to melt onto the sheets and stick

5Drop dough onto ungreased, cookie sheets and bake at 350 until golden brown… @ 10-12 minutes.

6Let cookies cool on pan for @ 1 minute then remove to cookie rack to cool.

7Glaze:
Stir together all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies. I put waxed paper under the cooling racks to help with the cleanup. I also pour the glaze into a zip lock bag and cut one corner off… make sure you don’t cut too much off or your glaze will be gloopy.
