I’ve always envied people who make cookies from scratch. They make them and they turn out delicious EVERY time! So I was really excited when I was flipping through our CK Products 2015 catalog and found so many different recipes! Here’s one recipe that I can’t wait to try out for Christmas. If you make this please let me know how it was in the comments.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1½ cups sugar
- 1 egg
- ¼ teaspoon CK Peppermint Oil (42-580)
- 2½ cups flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- CK Squeeze Gel Color in Super Red (41-69416)
- CK Pearlized Sugar Crystals – Red (78-507R)
Cream butter, gradually adding sugar, beating until light & fluffy.
Add egg & peppermint oil. Mix well.
Combine & add flour, baking powder & salt, beating just until blended.
Divide dough in half. Tint one-half with CK Squeeze Gel Color in Super Red (41-69416).
Cover & chill.
Roll each ball of dough into 16 x 8″ rectangles between sheets of waxed paper.
Invert plain dough onto red dough. Roll up both doughs together, beginning at one long edge.
Refrigerate overnight. Cut into ¼” slices. Sprinkle with sugar crystals before baking. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350˚F.
