A Candy Cane Dream
I just redefined yumminess. I think everything should be covered in candy canes.
This isn't my recipe but I'm totally bogarting it. I hate chocolate and it's hard to find a good non chocolate Christmas cookie that is easy and quick to make.
48ish Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
Red or green sugar
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.
2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8 to 10 (I did 10) minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
