Ingredients

1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries, well-drained
2 to 3 drops red food color
1/4 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts
2 to 3 drops green food color

Directions

Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed.

Divide dough into thirds. Add chopped cherries and desired amount red food color to one-third; mix well by hand. Add pistachios and desired amount green food color to second third of dough; mix well by hand.

Shape each third of dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper into 7x6-inch rectangle. Layer pink, white and green dough on large sheet of plastic food wrap; press down gently. Wrap securely in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (2 hours or overnight).

Heat oven to 350°F. Cut rectangle lengthwise into three 7x2-inch pieces with sharp knife. Cut each piece crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool completely.

Serve cookies with ice cream, chopped pistachios and maraschino cherries, if desired.

Recipe Tip

Wear plastic gloves when kneading food color into dough to prevent your hands from becoming discolored.
