Candy Cane Puffs

 1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
package white chips
1/2 cup peppermint candies, crushed

Combine flour and salt; set aside.
Blend together butter and sugar; beat in egg and extracts. Mix into flour mixture using low speed. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate for one hour.Or more if you are like me and had things to do and forgot about it for two.

Shape dough into walnut-size balls; place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes; cool. 
Melt white chocolate chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
Dip tops of cooled cookies into melted chocolate. Sprinkle on crushed peppermints; set on wax paper or parchment paper until hardened. Makes about 3 dozen.
 These were SO SO easy to make and they were yummy!!
