I did something fun for Christmas that others may want to try: split the dough into two parts. To one part add about six crushed candy canes. (I put them in a freezer bag, wrapped this in a light towel and hammered away!) I added some red food coloring as well. Roll out each dough. Place one sheet on top of the other. I had the red, candy cane dough on the bottom. Roll the two doughs together to make a long roll or tube. Press the dough now, to get out any air. This will cause the roll to lengthen a bit which is fine. Using a bread knife, cut this into cookie slices, place on tin foil and bake as above. (I seemed to need some more time--about ten minutes). It is easiest to just let the cookies cool on the foil, using a fresh sheet for each batch. It makes the prettiest swirl cookies--perfect for Santa!
