A couple of years ago while watching Food Network I saw Sandra Lee whip up a batch of these cute candy cane cookies and it was super simple. I made them that year and then never since. Evan has been asking for them a lot, so I made some.
1 batch of sugar cookie dough - either from scratch or use Betty Crocker mix
Red food coloring
Once dough is made split it in half. Color and flavor one half with coloring and extract. Roll dough into ropes and twine together, then bend to form candy cane. Place on cookie sheet and cook as directed by recipe. Enjoy!
See super easy and tasty. Why didn't I make these sooner????
