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)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter and sugar and then add egg.
2
Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add to butter and sugar mixture.
3
Add quick oats and candy. Batter will be stiff
4
Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper if you have it… it really helps as the candy tends to melt onto the sheets and stick
5
Drop dough onto ungreased, cookie sheets and bake at 350 until golden brown… @ 10-12 minutes.
6
Let cookies cool on pan for @ 1 minute then remove to cookie rack to cool.

Glaze:
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.
