    List of Ingredients

    Cup Butter (no Substitutes), softened
    Cup Sugar
    1 Egg Yolk
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    teaspoon baking powder
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon peppermint extract
    teaspoon red liquid food coloring


    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half; add extract and red food coloring to one portion.

    On a work surface, roll out each portion of dough between waxed paper into a 16in. x 10-in. rectangle. Remove wax paper. Place red rectangle over plain rectangle; roll up tightly jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight or until firm.

    Unwrap the dough and cut into in. slices. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: about 4 dozen.
