Amazing tasting Candy Cane Sugar Cookies! The perfect recipe for making decorative cut out cookies.
- 3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups softened butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup finely ground candy canes I use pink/red colored cherry flavoured
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
Mix together flour and salt.
Using food processor grind candy canes to fine sugar consistency.
Using electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, and candy cane sugar together until fluffy (about 4-5 minutes)
Add eggs and vanilla, beat to combine.
Add flour a bit at a time until all flour is combined.
Separate into 2 or 3 even pieces, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350º line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Flour work surface, then roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
Dust cookie cutters with flour before cutting shapes from dough.
Transfer to cookie sheet and bake 350º for 8-10 minutes (just until edges start to brown)
Cool completely, then decorate with Royal Icing
I like cherry flavoured red and white candy canes. They make a beautiful pink colour, but lately can only seem to find the red/white peppermint variety. These will work just fine just with a peppermint flavour instead of cherry. Link for How to Decorate cookies with Royal Icing
