  • Yields: 2 Dozen Cookies
Candy Cane Cookies

Directions

1Preheat oven to 375ºF. In large bowl, cream butter with sugar with mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and peppermint candy flavoring. Add flour 1 cup at a time to butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. If dough becomes too stiff, add water, a teaspoon at a time. Do not chill dough.

2Divide dough into 2 balls. Color one ball of dough red with icing color. Pinch off a 1-inch ball of each color dough.

3On flat surface, roll ball into 3-inch-long strips. Place red and white strips side-by-side; roll them together until the two colors have wrapped around one another and are twisted together.

4Curve the strip at the top to the shape of a candy cane and place on ungreased cookie sheet; gently press Sparkling Sugar into dough.

5Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.

6Cool on pan 2 minutes; remove to cooling grid and cool completely.
