Christmas Cookies

Today everytime I tried to type out today's recipe of the day, one of the boys would just decide that he needed Mommy now. Even if it was just to say 'hi Mommy, whatcha doing?'. I just wanted to curl up and read a good book by a fireplace somewhere. I really wish we had one of those. However we just made more cookies today with more to come soon. I love love this time of year. The house smells so divine. I love how these cookies just melt in your mouth.

Candy Cane Crisps

1 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup rolled oats (or just plain oats pulverized in the blender)
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup crushed candy canes (peppermint variety)

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup additional crushed candy canes

Cream sugar and butter. Add vanilla. Mix in flour, oats and salt. Add candy canes.
Roll into 3/4 inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place 2inches apart on greased baking sheets. Flatten cookies with fork making criss-cross pattern. Sprinkle with additional candy canes.
Bake at 325 for about 18-20 minutes. Cool on cool sheets about 2-3 minutes before transferring to racks.
