Cream shortening, butter and sugar. Add egg, flavorings and salt. Blend in flour gradually. Divide dough into 2 portions. Leave one portion as is; add red food coloring to second portion. Using about 1 teaspoon of dough, roll into a strip about 4 inches long. Place red strip beside uncolored strip, press together lightly, twist like a rope. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and curve one end like a candy cane. Bake at 375 degrees F (preheated) for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet while still warm and sprinkle with the crushed candy-sugar mixture.
