2 C. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t. vanilla
4 1/2 C. flour

3/4 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Add in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

Divide dough into 3 parts. To one part add the cherries and mix well. To the second part add the melted chocolate and pecans. To the third part add the poppy seeds. Add green or red food coloring to one or both of the white dough parts.

Take one part and roll into a long flat rectangle, about 12 to 18 inches long and about 2 to 3 inches wide. Roll the second piece and pat it across the top of the first. Repeat with the third piece. Wrap cookie dough in waxed paper and refrigerate overnight. Cut in 1/8 inch slices and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
