* 3 ⅔ cups all purpose flour
* ½ teaspoon baking powder
* ½ teaspoon salt
* ½ teaspoon baking soda
* 1 cup butter room temperature
* ⅔ cup brown sugar
* ⅓ cup sugar
* 1 egg room temperature
* 1 egg yolk room temperature
* ¼ cup milk
* ¼ teaspoon vanilla
* ¼ teaspoon butter extract
* Red and green food coloring gel food coloring recommended
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together the butter, brown sugar and sugar on high speed for 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.
Next add in the eggs, milk, vanilla and butter extract. Beat together for 30 seconds.
Then add in the flour mixture and bring together until fully incorporated being careful to not overmix.
Divide the dough in half and place each half in a separate bowl. Then add red food coloring to one bowl and green food coloring to the other bowl. Mix well until all of the dough is evenly colored.
Transfer each section of dough to two separate, large pieces of plastic wrap. Shape each section of dough into a 5×5” square. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and place both squares into the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
Once the dough has chilled, remove the plastic wrap, stack the dough squares on top of each other so that they are perfectly aligned.
Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently flour the top of the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll the square out into a rectangle about 9” wide and 18-20” long. Tightly roll the dough up into a log starting on the long end.
Tightly wrap the log with plastic wrap and place it into the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour.
