Cookies and Christmas - the two are simply synonymous. Gathering the kids 'round for an evening of cookie-baking is a time-honored holiday tradition, but the fun can leave your kitchen looking like a winter storm blew through.
Not so with these easy candy cane cookies; they're a snap (of a candy cane!) to make - and they look as great as they taste. The addition of crushed candy canes will put some peppermint-y goodness in your holiday dessert spread. Get your kids involved in the fun - they'll make great candy cane "crushers" and cookie "dunkers."
Variations to these candy cane cookies are endless; use these techniques but substitute your favorite cookie or frosting. Get creative in your combinations...with cookies and candy canes, you can't go wrong!
