    LoriLee in TX's Note:

    As kids we called this sugar cookie "candy cane cookies" because my Sunday School teacher shaped the dough into candy cane shapes. But we quickly created all sorts of shapes for these cookies. Some favorites were Halloween jack-o-lanterns, our boyfriends' initials, and fruit shaped cookies. My sisters and I still make these every Christmas in the traditional candy cane shape.
