Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Divide dough equally into three small bowls. Add almond extract and red food coloring to one portion; stir until thoroughly mixed. Mix chocolate into second bowl, and walnuts into the third bowl.

  • Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with waxed paper, and spread almond dough evenly in the bottom of the pan. Spread the walnut dough evenly over the almond layer, and top with chocolate dough layer. Cover layered dough with waxed paper, and place in the refrigerator until firm, about 4 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Turn out chilled dough by inverting pan; peel off waxed paper. With sharp knife, cut dough lengthwise in half. Slice each half of dough crosswise into 1/4 inch slices. Place slices on cookie sheet one inch apart.

  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

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 Read More

They were ok. They came out looking perfect but taste wise they were ok. I didn't find them amazing in taste. For looks they would get a 5. For taste to me like an average butter/sugar cookie. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

Made the following substitutions for Christmas: no chocolate layer instead add chopped red candied cherries to one layer with red food coloring and green candied cherries to another layer with green food coloring. For the white layer I used chopped blanched almonds instead of walnuts and the almond extract. Made a batch as soon as they were frozen and then another two weeks later - the flavor really intensified over time and the texture was better too! Read More

Deserving of all five stars great texture delicious taste and not as difficult to prepare as I originally thought. I did not add the nuts and the cookies were stil wonderful. Instead of melted chocolate I used bakers cocoa and still had great results. Thanks Missy these are a treat. Read More

These cookies were great - just like the ones my Grandma used to make for Christmas. I added chopped marchino cherries to the 'red' and a little cocoa to the chocolate to get more chocolate flavor. Read More

A great cookie. I've been eyeing this for awhile and finally made it and it was easy and turned out a light crunchy cookie with a great flavor. I added the almond to the white dough added 1/2 tsp strawberry extract with the red food coloring to the other dough and for the third mixed in the 1 oz melted chocolate as stated but also added three tablespoons Hershey's cocoa powder when it wasn't as dark looking as I wanted. I only chilled for two hours and it was easy to cut. The only thing I would do different is take the suggestion of another reviewer and cut the dough lengthwise into three sections instead of two as the cookies would be good a bit smaller. A fun cookie that the kids love..a keeper. Read More

WOW! these are sooooo good and pretty simple to make. next time i make them i may cut a bit of the sugar out as i found them a tad too sweet. i froze the cookie dough as other reviewers suggested and this worked out well. at christmas i will use this recipe with red and green food colouring and marachino cherries and green glace cherries to make a festive cookie. Can't wait! oh by the way i made these cookies last night and took them to get together and came back empty handed:) Read More
