How to make peppermint candy canes(makes 24 servings):

Line 2 large baking sheets with wax paper; set aside. Fit a large pastry bag with a 1/4-inch round tip. Dip a cotton swab in red food coloring; paint 5 or 6 lengthwise parallel lines inside bag; set aside and let stripes dry completely.

Preheat oven to 200°. In small bowl, with mixer on high speed, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in liqueur and extract. Spoon the meringue mixture into pastry bag; pipe 2 1/2-inch candy canes 1 inch apart, onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 1 hour or until dry. Turn off oven; let candy canes cool in oven 8 hours or overnight. Carefully remove candy canes from wax paper.
