      here’s an idea for using up leftover candy canes:

      2 T. cream cheese
      1 t. milk
      1/2 C.

      powdered sugar
      2 T. finely crushed peppermint candies
      1 drop red food coloring
      1 C. butter
      1/2 C.

      powdered sugar
      2 1/3 C. flour
      1 t. vanilla
      Combine cream cheese and milk.

      Add 1/2 C. powdered sugar slowly. Stir in 2 T.

      crushed peppermint candy & food coloring, set aside for filling.

      Cream butter and 1/2 C. powdered sugar. Mix in vanilla, then flour.

      Knead dough into balls, make a deep well in center of each ball. Fill with 1/4 t. of filling, shape a scant 1/4 t.

      of dough into a flat round, lay on top of filling; press gently to seal.

      Place on ungreased cookie sheet, bake 350° F for 12 minutes.
      Roll cookies while warm in a mixture of:
      1/4 C. powdered sugar
      6 T. finely crushed peppermint candies
