Here is a GREAT candy cane cookie recipe:


* 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 large egg
* 2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
* 3 drops red food coloring
* 3 drops green food coloring


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, add egg and lemon juice and continue to mix. Add dry mixture incrementally to wet mixture until fully incorporated.

Divide dough into 2 separate bowls; add 3 drops red food coloring to 1 bowl and 3 drops green food coloring to the other. Stir until colors are prevalent throughout.

Roll out both doughs on flour-dusted parchment paper to about 1/6-inch thick. Trim edges with a butter knife or pizza cutter to make a solid rectangle. Cut each color dough into 10 even strips, twist and wrap green dough with red dough and form candy cane shapes.

Place twisted dough on a parchment-lined cookie sheet 1/2 inch apart (they will spread) and bake for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Remove, cool and enjoy!

    Spiced Thins
    Rachael Ray

    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup vegetable shortening, at room temperature
    1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 cup unsulfured molasses
    4 cups flour
    1 large egg white, beaten
    Sanding sugar, for sprinkling

    1. Using an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar and shortening at high speed until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in the pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and cloves at low speed until blended. Gradually mix in the molasses at low speed. Mix in the flour at low speed, scraping the bowl as needed. Divide the dough into quarters, shape into disks and wrap in wax paper; refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
    2. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 325°. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a disk of dough until paper-thin. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out the cookies; using a metal spatula, transfer to the prepared cookie sheets. Repeat with another disk of dough; reroll the scraps and cut out more cookies to fill both cookie sheets. Brush lightly with the egg white and sprinkle sanding sugar on top. Bake, switching the pans halfway through, until browned and set in the center, about 20 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool. Repeat with the remaining disks of dough.
