    List of Ingredients

    1 cup butter -- softened
    1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate -- melted
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    3 to 5 drops green food coloring
    1/4 cup finely chopped candied red cherries
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    3 to 5 drops red food coloring


    In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the flour and mix well. Divide dough into three portions. Stir chocolate into one portion; mix well. Add the pecans and green food coloring to the second portion. Add the cherries, almond extract and red food coloring to the third. Roll each portion between two pieces of waxed paper into an 8-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Remove paper. Place chocolate rectangle on a piece of plastic wrap. Top with green and pink rectangles; press together lightly. Wrap with plastic wrap; chill overnight. Cut chilled dough in half lengthwise. Return one rectangle to refrigerator. Cut remaining rectangle into 1/8-in. slices. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375' for 5-7 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
