Have fun creating these candy canes, made with a cookie press and two colors of peppermint-flavored dough.

Ingredients

3/4
cup sugar
1/2
cup shortening
1/2
cup butter, softened
1
teaspoon peppermint extract
1
egg
2 1/4
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
Dash salt
6
drops red food color
15
hard peppermint candies, finely crushed

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, combine sugar, shortening and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add peppermint extract and egg; beat until well combined. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix well.
  • 2 Divide dough in half. To 1 half, add food color; mix until well blended and uniform in color.
  • 3 Attach star template to cookie press. With press lying on its side, fill one side with half of white dough; fill other side with half of pink dough. Press dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, forming 4-inch strips. Bend tops of each strip to form cane shape. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • 4 Bake at 375°F. for 4 to 7 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle warm cookies with crushed candy.

Expert Tips

For a more intense color, use paste food color instead of liquid food color.

To speed up the shaping process, press out a line of dough along the length of the cookie sheet near the edge. Cut the dough line into 4-inch pieces. Use toothpick to curve the top of each piece, forming the cane's handle. Continue process to fill the cookie sheet.
