Candy Cane Cookies!!!

Candy Cane Cookies!!!
Hmm these sound delish!
Would you like to try the
recipe? Here is the recipe
Enjoy!! :0)

Candy Cane Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Mix well the shortening and butter, sugar, egg, almond and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix
flour and salt and add to shortening mixture. Divide dough in half.
Blend red food coloring into one half. Roll 1 teaspoon of the red dough and 1 teaspoon of the
white dough on lightly floured board into 4-inch strips. Place strips side by side and press
lightly together and twist like a rope. Curve top of rope down to look like the handle of a candy
cane. (NOTE: Make one complete cookie at a time. If the dough of one color is shaped first, the
little rolls become to dry to twist.)
Bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove while still warm. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup
crushed peppermint stick candy and 1/2 cup sugar (optional).
Yield: 2 dozen
