Candy Cane Cookies- Recipe #4

As promised..here is my Candy Cane Christmas Cookie recipe. I pulled out the Taylor Expressions stamp for this one and paper pieced the hat, mitts, socks and birds using the Jolly by Golly line of paper! Very simple card today! I tried to take a picture of my cookies...before the kids started to sample!
Directions: Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Add flour and baking powder. Beating until blended. Add peppermint to taste. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Add red
food colouring to one half. Roll one small ball of white dough into pencil shape and one red dough
into pencil shapes. Wrap the red and white to form the shape of a candy cane!
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden on the sides!

I also tried my hand at something a saw in a scrapbooking magazine...I thought it was so cute! I took the package of gum and drew a snowman face right onto to the package! I had to fiddle a little to figure it out as there were no directions...darn!
The only thing I have not done yet was attach a cute little tag to the front! Just doll it all up any way you like!



I hope you all have a great day...and the sun is shining were you are! It is a dull, rainy kind of day here..but that is ok...I hear our weekend is suppose to be beautiful.
Thank-you so much for all your wonderful comments. I really do appreciate your comments so much!

  8. Ooh, how cute! Great idea for my grandkids who are always asking for gum. We had to put my 16-month-old grandson in the hospital yesterday, so I'm out of the blogging loop. I'll be back soon, I hope. Just stole a few minutes and had to check the cookie baking.:) Looks so yummy!!

  13. What a great recipe book you're going to have. How come I haven't been invited over for tea and some of those great looking cookies? I love the gum package, I saw it at the workshop and am trying to figure it out myself. You'll have to share the template.

  16. Hi, it's winter in Australia...and we like to celebrate "Christmas in July" with friends. (as real Christmas is usually spent with airconditioning on, and swimming in our backyard pool ...summer) I was looking online for some fun things to do, and found your site. Thankyou for all the lovely craft ideas!! Sue in Melbourne
