1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
cream in mixer
add 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
cream all together
then add 2 1/2 cups flour
half a teaspoon salt and mix well.
divide dough in half; mix red food coloring into half the dough
chill until firm enough to handle
now comes the fun part: playing with the dough
make two ropes with each color dough, twist together into a cane.
bake each tray at 375, 8-10 minutes
PS, Dave, I was texting you the whole time I did this blog post.
