My last official holiday cookie post. Actually, it's also my last post othe year! I can't believe 2011 is almost over. Happy New Year's Eve!Every year I always want to put something minty in my cookie boxes. Peppermint just seems to be a must during the holiday season what with seeing candy canes all over the place. I was tempted toremake last year's mint chocolate chip truffles, but decided at thelast minute to try something new this year. I searched for candy cane cookie recipe and found these cute cookies. They're super festiveand just minty enough, a wonderful addition to a set of holiday cookies.

Take one red piece of dough and one whitepiece of dough. Roll both dough pieces into 5 inch snakes. Twist thetwo snakes together. Pinch the two ends of the twist.Roll the whole twist a bit against the table so the two dough snakesstick better together. Then place the twist on a parchment lined baking sheet. Hook down the top of the twist to form a candy caneshape. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Bake the cookies for 8-10minutes, or until the bottoms begin browning. Leave on the bakingsheet a few minutes, then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.Makes 50 cookies.
