Peppermint Thumbprint Cookies Recipe
In a large bowl, cream the butter.

Add the powdered sugar and vanilla.

Slowly add the flour and mix well. If dough is too crumbly add a few teaspoons of milk until it is well mixed, but not too wet.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. With thumb or spoon, make indentation in the center of the cookie.

Bake at 350° for about 10-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Immediately remove from sheet and cool.

For filling, combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, milk and mint extract together.

When cookies are cooled, fill with filling mixture and top with crushed peppermint candies.
