This recipe has been a Christmas tradition in my house for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure where it originally came from, I can only remember a tattered old page torn out of a magazine or cookbook that we would fish out of our recipe drawer every year when we got ready to make them. These are tri-color cookies with a fantastic buttery flavor. I've seen other vatiations using cherries and melted chocolate, but this is the version I grew up with, so I use this one. I don't have the original directions anymore, since I never write them down whenever I recopy the recipe, because I've made them so many times. But if you've made cookies a few times beore, you know the order that everything should be mixed. The directions say to chill them in the fridge over night, but I usually just put them in the freezer for an hour or so, til they're firm enough to slice....because I don't like to wait.
