Candy Cane Shortbread Tutorial

Are you doing any baking for the holidays? It's a christmas memory thing for me.. especially making these cookies.I  used to make these with my mom when I was a little girl using a sugar cookie recipe, but since I've got a serious love for shortbread I decided to give it a go.

I made my normal recipe and then split it into two and added red food colouring to half of it.

I then made two finger thickness "snakes" one out of red shortbread and one of my white. About 8-9 inchs long.

Smush them together a little..

Cut your snack into thirds.

Roll out your new bi-coloured dough so its about 5-6 inchs long.

Roll your left hand towards you while rolling your right hand away from you so you notice the cookie dough "twisting"

Place onto cookie sheet on parchment paper and shape into a candy cane...

Bake as usual.. and enjoy!!

You could get UBER stupid fancy and do one half white dough and 1/4 green and 1/4 red dough.

 I missed making these!! Seasonal Greetings and happy cookie making.

What's your favorite cookie ?
