    my grandma used to make this every christmas but she used almond extract, rolled the two colors together lightly and then twisted it so that it was a uniform candy cane instead of two separate ropes twisted together. Then after baking she immediately dipped them in sugar. BEST COOKIE EVER.

  15. Ciara Coakley says:

    These cookies are so fun to make. To kick it up a notch you can add cinnamon extract to the red dough. YUMMY!

    i like the way she pronounces “Kipferl”. ^^
    In Austria it is more common to call them “Vanillekipferl”
    great video!
