Category: Cookies Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 1 roll refrigerator sugar cookie dough
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1 egg white
  • Candy cane (crushed up) - peppermint flavor
make it
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Take sugar cookie dough, mix with extract, and divide in half. Tint one half with the red food coloring, leave the other half as it is.

For each cookie shape 1 teaspoon of each color dough into a 4" long rope, rolling back and forth on wax paper to get smooth even ropes. Place 1 red rope and 1 of the "not tinted" ropes side by side - press together lightly and twist.

Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Curve one end of cookie down to form the handle of candy cane. Brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with crushed up candy cane.

Bake 8 - 10 minutes or till edges begin to lightly brown. Remove cookies from sheets - cool on wire racks.
Makes a delicious and beautiful Christmas cookie!
