2) Add red food coloring gradually to 1 bowl of dough, kneading together until the desired shade of red is created. To the second bowl of uncoloured dough, add peppermint essence and knead together.
3) On a plain floured work surface, shape each dough into balls and then roll each ball into 0.5cm-wide ropes, each about 13cm long.
4) For each biscuit, carefully twist some of the red and white ropes of dough together and shape into a candy cane. Spread the candy canes out on baking sheets and bake on the top shelf of the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool before serving.
