Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 3 Cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1 Cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 Cups crushed candy canes

Directions

Cream together the butter, sugar, and eggs in a stand mixer. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the sugar-butter mixture and then chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out the dough and cut into round cookie shapes, or any shape of your choosing, and lay out onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until crispy and cooked through. 

Candy Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Candy Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
