  • red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

  3. Add red food coloring gradually to 1 bowl of dough, kneading together until desired shade of red is created.
  4. To second bowl of uncolored dough, add peppermint extract and knead together.
  5. On a floured work surface, shape each dough into balls and then roll each ball into 1/4-inch-wide ropes, each about 6 inches long.
  6. For each cookie, carefully twist some of the red and white ropes of dough together and shape into a candy cane. Spread candy canes out on cookie sheets and bake on the top shelf of the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool before serving.
