  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter or margarine, confectioner's sugar, flour and peppermint extract. Mix well.
  3. Separate dough into two equal parts, put into separate bowls and tint with food-coloring. Roll dough into SMALL balls, approximately 1/2 tsp per cookie. Place six balls in a circle, alternating colors onto cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. NOTE: I guess you could omit peppermint flavoring or substitute it, but we like peppermint, so I have not tried variations or substitutions .
