  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and oil. Beat well
  • In a separate bowl, mix together 2 and 3/4 cups flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.
  • Add this dry mixture into the creamed mixture and beat well.
  • If needed, add the remaining 1/4 cup flour and beat until the dough forms into a ball.
  • Divide dough into 3 equal balls of dough.
  • Add red food coloring and cherry extract to the ball of dough.
  • Add blue food coloring and raspberry extract to ball of dough.
  • Add just the lemon extract to the last uncolored section.
  • Roll each ball of dough into a 10-in.-long rectangle log.
  • Place red, white and blue logs side by side.
  • Very lightly, press all the logs together in red, white and blue order.
  • Wrap in saran wrap and then chill until firm. I chilled mine for about 30 minutes.
  • Unwrap your dough and then cut it crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  • Place each slide about one inch apart on parchment paper on your baking sheets.
  • At the end of a strip, lightly press cookies with a fork and then pull down the dough to the end.
  • Bake until set about 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool for 2-3 minutes then transfer to a rack.
  • Using white chocolate candy melts, melt per package instructions. Spread on the inside of a cookie, insert a stick and place another cookie on the other side.
  • Let cool.
  • Or use white vanilla frosting to do the same.
