Candy Cane Peppermint Cookies is an easy recipe adapted from Domino Sugar. This recipe yields 24-30 cookies based on the 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter I used.



  1. In a small bowl add the sifted 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add in the egg and vanilla and beat well.
  3. Stir in a third of the flour at a time, blending well after each addition until smooth. The dough will be stiff.
  4. Lay out a sheet of wax paper, sprinkle with confectioners sugar, and roll out about a third of the dough to 1/4 inch.
  5. Cut out desired shapes, remove to prepared cookie sheet, and continue until all the dough is used.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are a light golden color.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack before decorating.
