1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup finely crushed candy cane mixed with 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all ingredients, except the crushed candy/sugar mixture.
Split dough into 2 equal portions.
Color one portion of the dough red.
Refrigerate the dough long enough to be able to easily work with it.
Break off one piece (approx. one teaspoon of each color) and roll by hand into four to five inch tubes.
Twist the two pieces together and bend forming a candy cane.
Sprinkle the top with the candy cane/sugar mixture.
Bake for 6-9 minutes.
Be careful when removing from the cookie sheet, they will break easily.
