To make candy cane Christmas cookies, take your favorite recipe for rolled cookies. (This will not work with drop cookies because the batter will be too sticky.) Mix up a batch and divide it into two equal parts. Add red food coloring to one half. Roll equal amounts of the plain and colored dough into 8 inch strips. Braid and fashion into a candy cane shape. Bake as instructed.
