  • Preheat oven to 275ºF
  • Gather dough together and divide into 4 discs.
  • Roll each disc between 2 pieces of waxed or parchment paper to a generous 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Cut out cookies using 3-inch round cookie cutter (or whatever shape you prefer) and place on parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Freeze for 15 minutes or until firm.
  • Repeat with remaining dough, re-rolling scraps.

  • Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes.
  • Remove cookies to cooling rack and let cool completely.
  • Tip
  • There are a couple of ways to crush your candy canes. For this recipe it is best to use a food processor on pulse to get crushed pieces that have some fine powder and smaller pieces throughout. Or, place candy canes in a plastic storage bag, and gently break with a small hammer ot meat tenderizer.
