Candy Cane Cookies

These adorable 'candy cane' cookies are fun to make, and have a delicious almond sugar cookie flavor. They make great gifts, or to spruce up a centerpiece!


You'll Need:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring


  1. Beat together butter, powdered sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla.
  2. Mix together flour and salt, and add to the wet ingredients, stirring until well-combined.
  3. Divide dough in half. Add red food coloring to half the dough. Roll even logs 1/2" wide of red dough, then white dough. Twist together and bend top to form cane shape.
  4. Bake on ungreased sheet for 9 minute at 375 deg. Can be sprinkled with a crushed candy cane and sugar mixture while still warm.
Happy December!
