Candy Cane Cookies
My mother-in-law is the cookie queen. Especially at Christmas. Every year, disinfection I look forward to the massive tupperwares filled with all kinds of cookies. But my favorites are always, here always the Candy Cane Cookies. These are the ones I sneak in the morning before breakfast, after breakfast with my coffee, as a mid-morning snack… You get the picture.
They’re simple shortbread-style cookies flavored with almond extract and covered in crushed candy canes and powdered sugar. They look they’re nestled in a snowdrift. They get all over your nice black pants. They’re simply awesome.
These cookies have been a tradition in Tom’s family for years and I know I’ll be including them with my own traditions.
