Last week I saw a link on facebook to Candy Cane Cookies. It looked fun. It looked like something the kids would love... they are obsessed with candy canes right now.
So we bought the stuff and tried it out. It's easy.
You buy 2 refrigerated sugar cookie doughs. Let one sit out and get a little soft and add some red food coloring. You can add peppermint extract if you want but we didn't have any so we skipped that and had plain sugar cookies. Then put the red dough back in the fridge for a while.
When everything is ready you roll out little snakes in each color and twist them together.
We followed the directions. They said to use one tablespoon of each color. This is what they looked like before going in the oven...
This is what they looked like after...
You might want to use less than a tablespoon!! :)
Click here for full directions. And notice that their cookies look completely different from mine. Misleading.
