    1. egg
    1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
    2 1/2cups powdered sugar

and red food color with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. 
Spoon frosting into decorating bag with large star tip. Pipe into each cookie cup. 
Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store in refrigerator.


Hoping that you are enjoying each and every moment of the Christmas season. 
We have been so busy with holiday events and preparations but it is all so sweet isn't it?
Do remember to take time for yourself, maybe pour that second cup of hot tea and indulge in another
sugar cookie! You deserve it!

Trust me -- I don't need any more cookies to eat, but these look great. I'll have to try them, but maybe wait until Valentine's Day. May you and yours have a glorious Christmas. Sally
