  • Sift in dry ingredients a third at a time, alternately adding with milk.
  • Stir until well blended.
  • Divide dough in half and tint one half pink.

  • Place strips side by side, pressing ends together, then twist gently into a rope.
  • Shape into candy canes if desired, or leave straight for old-fashioned peppermint stick look.
  • Bake 1 inch apart at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until firm.
  • Cool on wire racks, then store between layers of waxed paper in cookie tin.
