Chocolate Ribbon Cookies
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter
  • 1/2  cup  shortening
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  egg
  • 2  tablespoons  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/3  cup  semisweet chocolate pieces, melted and cooled
  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped nuts
  • 1/2  cup  miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/4  teaspoon  rum flavoring
Directions

1. In a mixing bowl beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour.

2. Divide dough in half. Knead the melted chocolate and nuts into half of the dough. Knead the miniature chocolate pieces and rum flavoring into the other half of dough. Divide each portion of dough in half.

3. To shape dough, line the bottom and sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with waxed paper or clear plastic wrap. Press half of the chocolate dough evenly in pan. Top with half of the vanilla dough, the remaining chocolate dough, and the remaining vanilla dough, pressing each layer firmly and evenly over the preceding layer.

4. Invert pan to remove dough. Peel off waxed paper or plastic wrap. Cut dough crosswise into thirds. Slice each third crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

5. Bake cookies in a 375 degree F. oven about 10 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool. Makes about 54 cookies.
