Candy Cane Cookies

Here’s my take on one of my all-time favorite cookies, an old, old recipe from Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book (©1963). Yes, they did spell it “Cooky.” I’ve tweaked the recipe here with the weight of the flour because this is one of the very rare recipes that requires measuring flour via the “dip method.” You get a very different measurement this way because you compact the flour as you dip, as opposed to sifting or scooping and leveling.
