3 cups flour 

¾ teaspoon baking powder 

¼ teaspoon salt 

2 sticks unsalted butter, room tempurature

1 cup sugar 

1 egg

1 tablespoon milk 

Powdered sugar for rolling 

Red food coloring 

Preparation Instructions: Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside 

In a separate large bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy

Add in egg and milk

Use the low setting on the mixer at this point and gradually add flour until the mixture pulls away from the bowl 

Divide the dough in 2 pieces and add stir in food coloring to one of the pieces until well combined 

Wrap the dough pieces separately in wax paper and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours 

Sprinkle powdered sugar on rolling surface and roll dough pieces out to about a 12 inch circle

Lay one circle on top of the other and roll together into a log shape

Cool on wire rack, serve, and enjoy!
