Candy Cane Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

red food coloring
1/4 cup crushed candy canes
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 375*

Cream together the butter, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla. Sift in flour and salt in separate bowl and add to butter mixture.

Divide dough in half and color one half red. Roll a tsp of each color dough into a 4" strip and then lightly press them together. Twist them like a rope and place onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Curve the top down to look like a candy cane. Bake about 9 minutes or until lightly browned. While still warm, remove from baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar and candy cane mixture.
