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

    Divide base dough into 3 equal portions. To first portion, add all orange dough ingredients; stir until well mixed. To second portion, add all lemon dough ingredients; stir until well mixed. To third portion, add all lime dough ingredients; stir until well mixed. (Doughs will be soft.)

  3. STEP 3

    Line 8x4-inch loaf pan with waxed paper or aluminum foil. Press orange dough in even layer onto bottom of lined pan. Top evenly with lemon dough, gently patting dough. Top evenly with lime dough, gently patting dough. Cover; refrigerate at least 4 hours or until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 375°F. Lift dough out of pan and peel off waxed paper or aluminum foil. Cut into 1/4-inch slices; cut each slice in half forming 2x1 1/2-inch pieces. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

I've made these twice now - both times for a wedding cookie table (it's a Pittsburgh thing!). They are very delicious and a pretty cookie, especially for spring or summer.
