    Prep Time: 55 min
    Total Time: 1 hour 35 min
    Makes: 4 dozen cookies

    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 eggs
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Yellow food color
    Red food color

    1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Stir together sugar, butter and shortening in large bowl. Stir in vanilla and eggs. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
    2. Divide dough into 3 equal parts. Stir 8 drops yellow food color into 1 part dough to make yellow dough. Stir 8 drops yellow and 3 drops red food color into another part dough to make orange dough. Stir 10 drops red, 8 drops green and 3 drops yellow food color into remaining dough to make brown dough.
    3. Drop small portions of each of the 3 colors of dough close together in random pattern onto lightly floured cloth-covered surface. Roll doughs together into marbled pattern to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2- to 3-inch leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
    4. Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched in center. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
