Directions

Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder and set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together in another large bowl. Add egg and beat until incorporated. Add the vanilla and peppermint extract. Gradually add the dry mixture, beating until combined. Remove half of the mixture from the bowl. Add food coloring, beating until fully combined. In waxed paper, roll out dough to form a large rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat this step with the other half of uncolored dough with no food coloring. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Tear out 1 sheet of waxed or parchment paper. Sprinkle the surface of the paper with powdered sugar to prevent sticking. Very carefully, slide the red dough on top of the white dough. Trim edges if uneven and patch if necessary. Roll dough into a log, creating a swirl effect. Place the dough back in the refrigerator and let chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Slice the dough into 1/2-inch slices and place on a parchment lined sheet tray about 1-inch apart. Place lollipop stick about 1-inch through the flat side of the dough. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Where would you buys "lollipop sticks"? I see Michaels has then but they can't go in the oven. I checked Williams-Sonoma also, but no luck. Any suggestions? I know I can get them online but I want to make these this weekend for use in gifts, and won't have time to get them shipped. THANKS

Tbhese are good cookies but they need a little tweaking. I'm not a very minty person...like more of a subtle mint so id make these with less next time. Also, the red turned out more a pinky red so id add a little more next time. All in all they were good and very cute in apperance.

This is an easy (although the chilling takes 4 hours) recipe. The results are fabulous! The lollipops are minty and adorable. I put them in cellophane treat bags and tied with xmas ribbons and put in the kids stockings. I know they will love them.
