I live for Christmas cookie baking season. There is nothing better (than summer) than snow falling outside, Christmas music playing and the smell of cookies coming from a warm oven. This recipe is a family favorite. I am not sure of its origins and the recipe is written on a scrap piece of paper sitting in my parents’ home. This recipe brings the beloved candy cane into cookie form. The mint is not overpowering but adds a little twist to Christmas cookies. I hope you enjoy this Candy Cane Christmas Cookie Recipe!
The secret to these Christmas cookies is that it does not use regular sugar. Powdered sugar is used instead and gives these cookies the perfect “melt in your mouth” sensation you love! I hope you enjoy this family recipe as much as we do! This just might be the cookie we choose to do as a family for our Christmas Advent Countdown.

Sometimes we end up with a little more of one color over another and get creative at the end. (Think hearts, pretzels, etc!) If you try this recipe, let me know! I’d love to know what you think. Let me know over on Instagram (that’s where I usually hang out!). Now excuse me while I grab a cookie with my cup of hot cocoa.
