Today, rather than a tutorial, I'm going to share with you one of our traditional Christmas cookie recipes. Along with several other cookies, these Candy Cane cookies are a treat that we enjoyed both making and eating each year when I was growing up! These are so easy to make, and a great recipe to get your kids involved in. Best of all, you can play around with flavorings and colors to really make these cookies your own! *This original peppermint recipe is from Betty Crocker*
Try these variations by dividing the ingredients ahead of time in two separate bowls, and make each dough with different flavorings. Color each dough according to the flavor, or just mix them up to make pretty colorful candy canes. *Cocoa will be added with the dry ingredients*
Coconut and rum
Almond and vanilla
Cocoa and orange
Cocoa and coconut
Cocoa and peppermint
These are fun to make, and yummy, crunchy and so satisfying to eat!
