Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 cup shortening
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring

Instructions

Mix shortening and sugar. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract. Add flour and salt. Divide dough in half. Add red food color to 1/2 of dough. Chill. Roll into small balls and twist together a "rope" of red dough and white dough, creating a candy cane. Hook the top of the cane to form a "J." Bake at 375 degrees (after sprinkling with granulated sugar) for 10 minutes, until light brown. Remove to wire rack to cool.
