Use the red color to get the look of candy cane. You can check my old pictures. This time I didn’t have red color. Since I am going back to India next month I don’t want to get any new things and want to empty my pantry. So used the orange coloring. You can skip the egg and make these as eggless version too. In that case use less flour. They actually use peppermint extract for candy cane cookies. I used the normal vanilla extract.
