Gluten-Free Candy Cane Cookies
I grew up with these cookies. Here is a new spin - gluten-free candy cane cookies.
- 1 C butter softened
- 1 C sugar
- 1/4 C confectioners sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp peppermint extract
- 1 egg
- 2 1/2 C Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- all-natural *red* food coloring
Beat together butter, sugars, vanilla and peppermint extract along with the egg.
Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Stir them in together. Once dough is formed separate half of dough into another bowl.
Add several drops of red food coloring, mix it with your hands until colored all the way through evenly.
With your hands take some of the plain dough and form a narrow strip (like a snake). Do the same with the red dough. Swirl them together until you make a pattern similar to a candy-cane.
Bake at 350f for 10 min.
