A delectable shortbread biscuit with gorgeous chocolate, pink and white stripes. As pretty to look at as they are delicious!
Three words...Cute, Easy, Delicious! I loved the almond flavoring mixed with the chocolate and banana. (Banana extract in my case but you can mix and match whatever flavorings you have on hand that you think will taste good together. Lots of room for creativity here.) You only need to make one dough which was very easy, and then divide it into 3 equal parts to color and flavor as you wish. For the pink layer I used maraschino cherry juice, a couple drops of red food color, almond extract and finely chopped maraschino cherries in the dough - tasted great! For the chocolate layer I mixed in 3 Tblsp. of cocoa to the melted chocolate for a richer, darker color and flavor. I just added the banana extract to the white layer, easy as could be. Very versatile for different occasions and easily assembled in a loaf pan for surprisingly impressive results. Refrigerated for 4 hours and easily removed from the loaf pan, I cut the dough into 4 rows for smaller cookies as others suggested and very pleased with the size of the finished product. I baked the cookies for 8 minutes and loved the chewy, soft texture/results. They were the 'Belle of the Ball' on my cookie tray and the first to disappear! Thank you Missy for sharing and this one is a keeper for sure~ - 21 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I found this recipe delicious!! I did change a few minor things.In the chocolate layer I put the nuts,in the vanilla layer I put packaged coconut, and left the red layer plain.Plastic wrap was used instead of waxed paper which made it easier to pull out of the pan for cutting into slices. - 15 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
very easy to make. Looks and tastes great. I omitted the nuts and used cocoa for the chocolate.I used plastic wrap and used a big enough piece that I could wrap it for the frig and then just lift the dough out. thanks missy! - 21 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
