Yield: 7 dozen cookies Prep 10 mins Chill 2 hrs Bake 375°F 6 mins


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon red-hot candies, crushed
  • 12 cinnamon classic starlight candies, crushed

Make It

1. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy and smooth, 2 minutes. Beat in egg and salt. On low speed, gradually beat in flour until well blended. Stir in crushed red-hot candies. Divide dough into 4 equal disks. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

2. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with nonstick foil or regular foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Place one disk on lightly floured surface; place piece of waxed paper on top. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into about 22 cookies using triangle template; place on baking sheets. Reroll; cut out scraps. Repeat with remaining dough, for a total of about 7 dozen cookies.

4. Using 3/4-inch cutter, cut out centers from cookies. Fill each center with scant 1/4 teaspoon crushed candies.

5. Bake in 375 degrees F oven 6 minutes, until edges are golden. Let stand on sheets 2 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool.
