 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Stick Margarine; Softened
  • 1 1/2 c Confectioner's Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 1 ts Peppermint Extract
  • 2 1/2 c All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 ts Baking Soda
  • 1 ts Cream Of Tartar
  • 1 ts Red Food Coloring
  • 1/4 ts Yellow Food Coloring
  • Confectioners Sugar For
  • -Sprinkling


In large mixer bowl mix margarine, sugar, egg, vanilla, and peppermint
extract. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda and cream of
tartar. Blend into creamed mixture on low speed, scraping sides of bowl,
until a soft dough is formed.

Divide dough in half, removing one half to a small bowl. To the remaining
hald add the red and yellow food colorings. Blend in to color all of that
portion of the dough completely.

Preheat oven to 375øf.

Working first with the plain uncolored dough, or having another person or
child work with half of the dough, roll pieces of dough on counter or
other flat surface to form "worm" or pencil shapes or various lengths.
Begining in one corner and alternating the colors, place them diagonally in
a jelly roll pan. The stripes should be close enough that when they are
pressed down lightly they will touch. The dough is very forgiving and short
"worms" can bw pinced together to form long ones in the pan. When the pan
is full, press lightly to push strips together. Bake about 15 minutes at
375ø until lightly golden brown.

Cut immediately into sticks aproximately 1"x3". (depends on the pan!)
Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and store air tight.

Cookies may be "crisped" in a warm oven if needed to freshen them.
Sprinkle with fresh sugar after reheating.

This dough may also be formed into cane shapes. Make pencil sized "worms"
and twist together. Bend one end for cane shape. Bake and dust with
confectioners sugar. Store as bar cookies.
