Why I Love This Recipe

These are my favorite cookies! I usually only make three stripes. Dipping in chocolate is optional!

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg


Line 9x5 or 8x4 inch loaf pan with foil.

In large bowl, combine above ingredients until stiff dough forms.

Divide dough into 3 parts.

1 part :

stir 1/4 finely chopped red maraschino cherries, well drained & 1/4 almond extract

2nd part:

1 envelope pre melted chocolate or 1 square unsweeted chocolate, melted and cooled

3rd part:

1/3 finely chopped nuts

6 drops green food coloring.

Spoon and evenly press the chocolate, green and cherry dough in lined pan.

Cover, chill several hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Remove dough from pan.

Cut in half lengthwise. Cut into 1/4 inch slices.

Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes until edges are slightly brown.
