Candy Cane Shortbread Cookies Recipe

Candy Cane Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sifted 10x sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift and Add:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add and swirl red food coloring. Form into canes and place on ungreased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

Note: For shortening, you may want to use butter or butter-flavor Crisco. Although regular Crisco keeps the cookies more white, the butter or butter-flavor Crisco adds a bit more flavor.
