Left Over Candy Canes ... No Problem We Make .. Candy Cane Crinkles

As most of you know I'm having laser surgery Wednesday night.  My dear friend is going to help me on Thursday AM getting the boys to school just to be on the safe side.  I am always so grateful to have her help and know she and her family love treats.  I had some left over candy canes from a project that I pulled out of the pantry earlier this week that I wanted to use.  Why not make cookies?

I went on a Google Search and came across a Candy Cane Crinkles recipe on Lauren's Latest.  She adapted her Lemon Crinkle recipe for this recipe, yes I so will be making the Lemon one's next!!

Candy Cane Crinkles

yield: 2 DOZEN SMALL

INGREDIENTS:

3 whole candy canes, crushed
½ cups Butter, Softened
1 cup Granulated Sugar
½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 whole Egg
¼ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
⅛ teaspoons Baking Soda
1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
½ cups Powdered Sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored baking sheets with non stick cooking spray, line with parchment paper or use silicone baking mat and set aside.
Place candy canes into a plastic food storage bag and crush using a rolling pin. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whip in vanilla and egg. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir all dry ingredients together in a small bowl and then in pour into mixer and slowly mix until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly. Stir in crushed candy canes. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies look matte {not melty or shiny}. Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
*If using a non stick darker baking tray, reduce baking time by about 2 minutes.
ALEXIS NOTES:  I used a silicone mat.  My oven must not have been running hot enough and it took around 13 minutes to bake (mine also may have been on the larger side).  I used a box of candy canes so mine are extra peppermint flavored.  I also used my ninja to break up the candy canes.
The boys were my testers and gave these cookies a two thumbs up!  So you have some extra candy canes laying around don't throw them out try this recipe!!
