Steps:

  • Beat the butter, superfine sugar and salt in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg, vanilla and peppermint extract. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the flour until incorporated. Transfer the dough to a piece of plastic wrap and pat into a rectangle; tightly wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread some red sanding sugar and superfine sugar on separate plates. Gently roll heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into short logs with your hands. One at a time, roll half of the logs in red sanding sugar to form 4-inch strands. Repeat with the remaining logs and superfine sugar. Twist 1 strand of each color together, then arrange on the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart, and bend the tops to form candy canes. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake, switching the pans halfway through, until the cookies are set and lightly browned around the edges, 11 to 13 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheets.

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup superfine sugar, plus more for rolling
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract (optional)

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.

Steps:

  • Cream together butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Beat in egg, vanilla and peppermint extract.
  • Stir together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Alternately with milk add dry ingredients to creamed butter mixture. 3 dry, 2 milk. Until smooth and pliable.
  • Divide in 1/2; blend food coloring into 1/2.
  • Cover and chill for 4 hours or firm.
  • Cut each into 48 pieces.
  • With hands, gently roll one piece of each color into 4 inch rope. Place side by side and twist together.
  • Put on cookie sheet, form a cane.
  • Bake at 375 F for 12-15 minutes.
  • Hints: Gently squish the ropes together and onto the cookie sheet, that way they stay together and don't unravel. Since I make 8 dozen each year, I make 2 batches of dough and add the food coloring to the milk of one dough, that way I don't have to over work the dough trying to get the color evenly mixed inches.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 dash peppermint extract, I actually use 1 tsp
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup milk
red food coloring

Steps:

  • Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and line two large baking trays with non-stick baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl using a wooden spoon or in a stand mixer until soft, pale and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.
  • Tip in the flour, milk, vanilla bean paste and a pinch of salt, and mix everything together using a wooden spoon until you have a dough. Divide the dough into two pieces, and set one half aside. Divide that piece in half again. Colour one half with red food colouring gel and the other with green. They must be a dark, intense shade because they will lighten slightly as they bake.
  • Roll golf-ball-sized pieces of the plain dough into 15 x 1cm sausages between your palms, then repeat with the red and green doughs. On a work surface, lay a plain dough sausage parallel to a red or green one. Join the bottoms together, then lightly twist along the length. Do this gently - don't be tempted to press them together or the colours may meld. One by one, carefully lift each twist of dough, place on one of the prepared trays and curl at the top to form a hooked candy cane. Repeat until all the dough is used (you should have about 12 canes), spacing them apart by about 5cm.
  • Bake for 12-14 mins until set and slightly golden. Leave to cool slightly on the trays before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Will keep in an airtight container for up to three days.
