Perfect for holiday time, these cookies look gorgeous on a platter! Not only that, but they’re very fun to make and taste so yummy. Pick a time to do these cookies when you’re feeling creative — trust us, the end product will be worth it.

How To Make Candy Cane Cookies

  • 2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp peppermint candy
  • 1/2 tsp red food coloring
  1. Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla and mix well.

  2. Sift flour and salt together and beat into butter mixture until well mixed.

  3. When ready, divide dough in half. To one half, add the red food coloring.

  4. Using about a tablespoon of dough, roll a 4" strip of each color (no fatter than a pencil).

  5. Place the two colored rolls side by side and press lightly together. Gently twist like a rope and place on an ungreased cookie sheet 1" apart.

  6. Curve the top like a candy cane and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Do not brown.

  7. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy before cooled. Serve once cool.
