Christmas candy cane cookies are easy to make, delicious and funny. You just use your favorite recipe for butter cookies, color half of the mass and twist them instead of cutting them out. It’s simple, isn’t it? 🙂
This time I used a recipe for butter cookies in which there was an addition of baking powder and it probably did not work for them. Next time I’ll try different recipe.

How to make Christmas candy cane cookies
First of all, you should prepare the dough in 2 colors, one classic part and the other with red dye. This has to be planned before starting work, because the dye is added with all the ingredients. So you have to divide the ingredients into two or prepare a double portion from the recipe of your choice.
Once you have the dough ready, instead of rolling it out, tear off both colors in pieces. Make the rolls and twist them together. Then put it on the baking tray and bend the stick.
Bake according to the recipe or even a little less so that the natural part does not brown too much. The ones that baked on the bottom tray turned out to be much nicer.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
