Pinwheel Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups regular all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
Red food color

In a mixing bowl cream butter; gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Sift together flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Divide dough for ease in handling. Between two pieces of waxed paper roll each half into a rectangle about 14 x 10 inches. Place red dough on top of light. Roll lightly. Starting from longer side, roll up tightly. Chill. Cut into about 1/8-inch slices; place on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 7-10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.

Yield: approximately 5 1/2 dozen
