Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix butter, sugar, eggs and flavoring. Mix flour salt and blend in thoroughly. Divide dough in half. Blend food coloring into 1 half. Chill both halves until firm.
  2. On a lightly floured board, roll the plain half into a 12-inch square. Roll the red half the same size and lay on top of the plain dough. Roll the double-layered dough gently until about 1/4-inch thick. Roll up like a jelly roll and chill one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice cookies 1/4 inch thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 9 minutes or until lightly browned. While still warm, brush with egg-white glaze (1 egg white combined with 2 tablespoons water) and sprinkle with peppermint candy and sugar.
