Candy Cane Cookies

These are so much fun and didn't last long at my house.  Its really simple to do first make a batch of your favorite sugar cookie recipe I used this one here.  
When you get to the step where you put the dough in the fridge and chill it divide the dough in half.  I colored one of the batches red (I used gel food coloring).

I used a loaf pan and lined the pan with saran wrap.  Then broke off a chunk of dough flattened it then squished/flattened it against the side of the pan.  Then continued alternating colors until I was out of dough.

 I would pull up the saran wrap and use that to help flatten the dough and squish it together.  When I was done with that I chilled it in the fridge for the time the recipe called for.
 When the dough was ready I cut off a slice of the dough block and then cut out my candy cane.
 There was room in the leftovers of the slice to make candy sticks as well.

 Bake as directed.
