Peppermint Oatmeal Cookies

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

How to Make Peppermint Oatmeal Cookies


  • 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.
