Candy Cane Cookies - Take 2
Recipe type: christmas
  • 1¼ cups self raising flour flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 175 grams butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup caster sugar
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cups white chocolate chips, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup candy canes
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
  2. You can use a food processor to grind the candy canes, but we don't have one, so simply used the good old fashioned mortar and pestle to crush them up.
  3. In a large bowl cream butter, sugars and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
  4. Fold in chocolate and crushed candy canes.
  5. Add flour and combine into a firm dough.
  6. Place large tablespoons on to lined baking trays, allowing room for spreading.
  7. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until golden.
  8. Cookies will harden upon cooling, so leave on tray for a few minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool further.
