Flour, sugar, butter, egg, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, crushed candy canes or peppermint candies, red sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF. Use a rolling pin to crush the candy canes.
In the mixer, beat ¾ cup butter and ¼ cup sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 or 3 minutes.
Add in the egg and beat until combined. Mix in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract.
Add the flour in batches and beat on low speed until combined. Stir in ½ cup crushed candy canes with a mixing spoon.
Split the dough in half. Roll one half of the dough into a log. Then repeat with the other half.
Spread the red sugar out on a cookie sheet. Roll the logs in the sugar so that the outside is covered. Wrap the cookie dough logs in parchment paper.
Freeze until firm, at least 30 minutes. Use a serrated knife to slice the log into ½” thick pieces.
Place the cookies on a parchment-lined cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
Bake at 350℉ for 10 to 12 minutes. The cookies should not turn brown. Move the cookies to a wire rack and let them cool completely.
