Christmas Candy Cane Cookie

A cute little candy cane cookie painted in 20 minutes. This variety is one of my holiday favorites, I love peppermint flavor in pretty much any sort of sweet. Part of the dough is tinted pink and then the two colors are twisted gently together before baking, which is somewhat time consuming, but worth it. They get sprinkled with crushed up candy canes, though whatever doesn't stick to the top melts, and makes the cookies adhere to the tray (not a problem for me this time, as I used parchment paper on the trays). Holiday baking is the best! Watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".
