1 c powdered sugar
1/2 c margarine
1/2 c shortening
1 egg
1 1/2 t almond extract
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 t salt
1/2 t red food coloring
1/2 c crushed peppermint candy
1/2 c sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine powdered sugar, margarine, shortening, egg, almond extract, and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Add flour and salt and continue mixing until dough is formed.

Divide dough in half and add red food coloring to half. Take approximately 1 teaspoon of each dough color and form into 2 small ropes. Twist together to make a striped candy cane shape. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Cook for 9 minutes.

Combine crushed peppermint candy with sugar. When cookies are done, immediately sprinkle them with sugar mixture while they are hot. Carefully set cookies on cooling rack.
