1 cup margarine, softened
1 egg white, lightly whipped
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1- 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon red food coloring

In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, egg white, and vanilla extract. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened. Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Tint 1 portion with red food coloring. Mix throughly to get a uniform color. Untinted dough represents white. Form each portion into bars of equal length and about 1 inch thick. Wrap each bar in waxed paper. Refrigerate until easy to handle. Remove waxed paper and stack bars on top of each other in the following order: white, red, white. Wrap entire bars in waxed paper again and chill until firm. Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut bars into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool for about 1 minute, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
