Laura is sharing a favorite recipe with us today! Even though, they’re called Christmas Peppermint Patties, I’m pretty sure they’d taste good any time of the year!

Christmas Peppermint Patties

3 ¾ cups powdered sugar

3 T butter (not oleo) softened

2 or 3 t. peppermint extract

½ t vanilla

¼ c. evaporated milk

2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

2 T. shortening

 

Combine first four ingredients, add milk and mix well. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.  Chill for about 20 minutes. Flatten with a glass to 1/4 –inch thick; chill for 30 minutes. Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Dip patties; place on waxed paper to harden. Yield: About 5 dozen.

As an extra surprise, Laura is giving away a print copy of her book-A White Christmas:

A Christmas romance…
A new beginning…
A resurrected past…
 
A White Christmas in Webster County!
If you’d like to win A WHITE CHRISTMAS, leave a comment. Drawing will be on September 20 so hurry!
UNTIL NEXT TIME…GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!
