Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a mixer bowl or by hand, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in egg, almond extract, vanilla, and salt. Blend flour into mixture in several additions, beat until just combined.
  • Remove half the dough from the bowl. Blend red food coloring into the half remaining in the bowl until the coloring is even. Cover dough a kitchen towel to keep it from drying out as you work.

Place a red and white rope side-by-side, press together lightly and twist to form a spiral. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Curve top down to form handle of a candy cane. Bake until set, about 9 minutes. While the cookies are baking, put peppermint candies in a resealable plastic bag and crush into small pieces with a rolling pin. Mix the candy with the sugar. Place cooling rack over shallow pan. Immediately remove cookies from cookie sheet and gently place onto cooling rack. Sprinkle with candy/sugar mixture.

VERY EASY CANDY CANE COOKIES

This recipe came from Quick Cooking (one of the best magazines Reiman Publishing came out with next to Taste of Home and all the others!). When you're doing massive quantities of cookies, any short-cut is appreciated. This recipe uses refrigerated cookie dough. And really, who's gonna know? Just spruce it up a bit and keep your mouth shut and take 100 % of the credit. (You could make your own sugar cookie dough too if you desire...either way, these are beautiful on a holiday tray!)
