Of course, you can do many flags with this cookie, depending on colors and placement. If you are shooting for American patriotic, make sure that you present them so that they appear in the order of red, white and blue, because if you turn them upside-down, in blue, white and red, they are the exact French flag. 🙂 Italians, you just need green. And so on! Canadians…you know what to do!

Ingredients

  • 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

  • 1 teaspoon blue food coloring

  • (or other food coloring depending on the flag you are trying to reproduce)

Directions

  • 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 and another portion with blue food coloring. Mix thoroughly 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 desired color arrangement. 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.

I have to say that these are now my favorite cookies. I have many friends in the armed services, I made these for them once they got back from a 6 month deployment from Iraq, it just added something extra special to them being home and safe for the holidays...thank you so much for sharing this wonderful and patriotic cookie. All my blessings for a wonderful holiday season.
