Candy Cane Cookies

Lorena King

& Shantel Wilson


1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup shortening or butter flavored crisco
1 cup sifted confectioners sugar 
1 egg 
1 1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)

Cream shortening and butter then mix in sugar, egg, almond and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt and add to shortening mixture. Divide the dough in half.

Blend in the red food coloring into one half.

Roll 1 teaspoon of the red dough and 1 teaspoon of the white dough on a lightly floured board into 4 inch strips. Place the strips side by side. Press lightly together and twist. Curve top of the twisted rope down to look like the handle of a candy cane.

Make only one complete cookie at a time. If you try to shape the dough of one color first the rolls will become too dry to twist

Bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove while still warm. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup crushed peppermint stick candy and 1/2 cup sugar

Makes 2 dozen

With a little help from a class assignment, a sudden detour, and Jane Austen, Emily finds an unexpected romance with a most unlikely prospect.

Food-Related EXCERPT:

Funny, I had no trouble making the actual card for Todd. It was turning out great. But I still hadn't thought of one word of text for it. Oh, well. I'd have all day Sunday. Assuming it stopped snowing and I got home where I'd have time to myself.

Finally, I was satisfied with my card. Just as I was admiring my work, Mrs. Blair announced, "Lunch time!"

Lucas must have been really concentrating on his card, because he jumped when his mother spoke. I noticed that he tucked the card away in a book and placed the book on a shelf. It was then I also noticed that the shelf was crammed with books, so many that they spilled out onto the floor. Funny, but I hadn't pictured the Blairs as book people

After a delicious lunch of home-made vegetable soup and home-made bread spread with home-made butter, Lucas turned to me and said, "I've got to head out to the barn and do some chores. Would you like to come along?"

"Sure," I said. I'd finished my valentine for Todd and couldn't think of anything else I could do at the moment anyway.
