Candy Cane Cookies

Dish: Cookies & Bars
Dish Type: Other
Cooking Method: Baked
Difficulty: 2 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time: 6 - 9 min.

  • 1 cup - butter or margarine
  • 1 cup - powdered sugar
  • 1 - egg
  • 2 tsp - vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups - flour
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 1/2 cup - finely crushed candy cane mixed with 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp - red food coloring

Mix all ingredients. Split dough into equal portions. Color one portion of the dough red. Refrigerate the dough long enough to be able to easily work with it. Break off one piece (approx. one teaspoon of each color) and roll by hand into four to five inch tubes. Twist the two pieces together and bend forming a candy cane. Sprinkle the top with the candy cane/sugar mixture. Be careful when removing from the cookie sheet, they will break easily. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes.
