Updated September 18, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Red sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.) Add peppermint extract; stir or knead dough until well blended.
  • 2
    Place about half of dough in cookie press fitted with star tip. Press dough into 5-inch strips on ungreased cookie sheets. With fingers, shape top of each to resemble candy cane. Sprinkle with red sugar. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • 3
    Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.

  • Spritz refers to cookies made by forcing dough through a cookie press.
  • To give these cookies the traditional peppermint stick flavor, be sure to use extract labeled "peppermint" and not "mint" or "spearmint."
