How to Get the Candy Cane Flavor
If you’re going to have a candy cane cookie, then you need to have one loaded full of flavor. That’s just what these blossoms are!
To get the candy cane flavor, the sugar cookie dough is infused and perfectly swirled and speckled with crushed candy canes. Simply peel about 7 candy canes, finely crush them and add them into your dough! It’s so fun to see the speckles of candy cane in the cookie dough.
Then, if that weren’t enough, they are topped with a candy cane kiss candy after they come out of the oven.
Pure candy cane bliss!
