Kid #1 browsed through cookie recipes in an old cookbook I have and found this recipe for Candy Cane shaped Butter Cookies. He really wanted to make these cookies.
So, we made them. Or, rather, he made them. He shaped each and every one of these buttery candy cane shaped cookies. They are good!
In fact, they are so good that this recipe forCandy Cane Butter Cookies are on my Christmas Cookie List again! Just be very careful not to over-mix the dough and to work on one cookie at a time or they can be rather crumbly.
