Crunch up a bunch of candy canes in a blender. Sift the dust and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 deg. F.

Cream 1 1/2 sticks of butter with 1/2 c. icing sugar. Slowly add 1 1/2 c. cake flour and 1/2 c. candy cane dust. Blend into a smooth dough and firm it up in the freezer for 10 minutes. Prepare small cookie molds and press the dough halfway up mold. Let the dough set in the freezer for 1 hour. Bake directly out of the freezer for 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool in the molds for a few minutes and release them onto a cooling rack. Sprinkle with more candy cane dust.
