SUGAR FREE CANDY CANE COOKIES

Ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated Natural Sweetener
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Red Food Colouring

Instructions:

Step 1 - Add 8 tablespoons of soft Butter and 1/2 cup granulated Natural Sweetener to a large bowl. Use an electric beater to combine for 5 minutes and cream the butter until it is a light colour.
