Candy Cane Cookies

Today I made a staple of my childhood, Candy Cane Cookies.
First off, make sure you have a helper. This is very important:
Make a batch of white and a batch of red dough:
Twist them together and form canes: (can you tell which ones the helper did?)
And spend baking time knitting an elephant's head:

Candy Cane Cookies:
3/4 C Butter, Softened
3/4 C Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tsp Perrermint Extract
2 C All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
1/3 C Flakes Coconut
1 Tsp Red Food Coloring

In bowl cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and extracts. Stir together flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Stir coconut into one portion; blend food coloring into the second portion. Cover each one and chill 30 - 90 minutes.
Pinch a small ball of dough off each section (making sure they're the same size and roll into 5 inch ropes. Twist and shape like a candy cane. Repeat for each cookie. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

The fact that you can combine candy cane cookies and a knitted purple elephant's head into one post, kinda makes you my Blogging Hero for today. ☺ Thanks for the recipe. I think I'll try this with LittleGirl. She'll love it! Happy FTF! ☺

I had not seen candy cane cookies before. What a great cookie! I bet your helper had a wonderful time as well.

Shay said...

So cute! -the helper AND the candy cane cookies.

Ive never seen these before either but now Im desperate to give them a go . How fiddly are they to do? (Im not known for my baking patience!)

They look fabulous and Im so glad you shared them with us.

They are super easy Shay. Just roll and twist. Plus I think the imperfections make them charming!
