A new twist on the classic cookie and a great way to use up those candy canes.

Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 12 crushed candy canes

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat and put in refrigerator to chill.
  • Whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
  • Gradually stir in the flour mixture, beating on low speed just until the flour is blended.
  • Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix together the sugar and crushed candy canes in a small bowl.
  • Scoop 1-inch balls of dough and roll in the crushed candy canes to coat.
  • Place on chilled cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Chill the dough and cookie sheets between batches.
  • Let cookies set on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack. Store cookies in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Kindly contributed by Beth, who adds: “These were a staple in the house growing up. Over the years I’ve adapted them to fit almost any holiday. Try pumpkin spice for holidays…Very yummy! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!”
