Per serving


Oven, Electric hand mixer, Sheet Tray


Flour (all-purpose)
Baking soda
Baking powder

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder & a pinch of salt.

Candy canes

Step 2

Add the candy canes to a plastic zip-top bag. Use a rolling pin to crush up the candy into small bits. (3 crushed candy canes should equal about a 1/4 cup)

Butter (unsalted)
Sugar (granulated)
Brown sugar (light)

Step 3

In a large bowl, add room temp butter, brown sugar & granulated sugar. Beat it all together with an electric hand mixer for 2-3 min.

Vanilla extract

Step 4

Add the vanilla extract & egg. Continue mixing until well-combined. Scrap down the sides of the bowl so everything is incorporated.

Step 5

Add in the dry ingredients in two batches, mixing thoroughly each time. Fold in most of the crushed candy cane bits with a rubber spatula or spoon (reserve 1 tbsp of the candy for topping).

Step 6

Use a cookie scoop or tbsp to portion out the cookies. Roll into a ball & arrange the cookies on a parchment-lined sheet tray. (You may need 2 trays to spread out all the cookies!) Press a bit of the leftover candy cane on the top of each cookie. Bake the cookies in the oven at 350°F for 9-12 min, removing just before the edges turn brown.

Step 7

Rest the cookies for 5 min on the sheet tray before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Serve the cookies & enjoy!
