Candy Cane Cookies

Make Christmas Cookie dough. Before chilling dough, divide and add about ½ teaspoon red food coloring to half of it. When chilled, pinch off pieces of dough and roll each into ropelike strips 6 inches long and about ½ inch thick. To make canes, lay a red and a white strip next to each other; starting in middle, twist the two straps together to each end. Then bend one end to resemble cane; with skewer make small hole near top for hanging it up. Bake as directed for Christmas Cookies.
