Enjoy These 7 Holiday Treats This Christmas Season!

Do you set aside a day for annual Christmas Cookie baking? I do and it is a lot of fun!

Check out what my pals over at Group Recipes had to say about this recipe:

These are fun easy cookies to make. Get the kids to help you!

My children love to help make Christmas cookies. These candy cane cookies were a big hit at my house!




125g Land O Lakes butter or marg

1 cup castor sugar

1 Eggland’s Best egg

2 tsp TruMoo milk

1 cup plain Gold Medal white flour

1 1/2 cups self-rising white flour

1 tsp McCormick vanilla

1 drop red food coloring




In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and milk. Sift in the flours. Combine into a dough.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a couple of baking trays with baking paper (or use a silicon tray liner).

Take out two thirds of the mixture and add ONE drop of red food colouring to the remaining third in the bowl. (2 thirds mix = “white”. 1 third = “red”).

Now the fun starts!

Onto a lightly floured surface pull off a chunk of white dough and a smaller lump of red dough. Roll each piece into a thick sausage and then add them together, twisting and rolling until the sausage is ribboned like a candy cane. Roll thin and cut into smaller sausages and transfer to the tray. Make the cane shape on the tray.

Bake for approx 8mins (until cooked, but not browned).






Quick Tip: Leave these cookies out for Santa with a big ‘ol glass of milk!

Thank you to Group Recipes for this great recipe.


I love Frankenmuth. I lived in the Detroit area from the age of 20 to 50 so it was a special treat to drive several hours for dinner. There were two restaurants across the street from each other and everyone had a favorite, Bavarian Inn or Zenhnder’s. My ex and his family only ate at Zehnder’s, which I did not consider worth the drive. THEN I discovered the Bavarian Inn and was amazed at how deliciously different the food was from Zehnder’s. While I was never a fan of the stollen I was definitely a fan of the chicken dinner and would make the trip every Spring, Summer and Fall. Not just for the food but for the shopping, as well. This was long before the Outlet Mall opened so the only shopping was in Frankenmuth and the Christmas Store and the Clock Shop were always a delight. Thanks for the Memory!

I am looking for a recipe for using a white cake mix and peppermint flavored candy pieces..I saw it on a quick ad..but didn’t find it again.
