1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Argo® Cornstarch

Directions

Combine butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and cornstarch; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (30 to 60 minutes).
