Candy cane cookies recipe

I enjoy baking cookies at home every time and like to try new variety of cookies. But I really enjoyed while making these cookies. Mining candy cane cookies is so much of fun. They looks so pretty and beautiful. The easy part of these cookies are you can easily bake these cookies with very easily available ingredients. I made them couple of days back and They turned out so perfect. My daughter's were really surprised by seeing these cookies. I used my short bread cookie dough recipe to make these cookies. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
