    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

    2 eggs
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1. Heat oven to 400F. 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.
