About 4 dozen cookies

1 1/4
cups sugar
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
cup butter-flavor shortening
1
egg
2
tablespoons milk
2

3 1/4

teaspoon baking soda
1/8
teaspoon salt
10
drops red food color
16
drops yellow food color
9

tablespoons pastel-colored confetti candy sprinkles
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line bottom of 9x5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. In large bowl, beat sugar, butter and shortening with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt until dough forms.
  2. Divide dough into 3 parts. Knead 1 food color into each part of dough. Press one of the colored doughs in bottom of pan. Top with remaining colored doughs, pressing each layer firmly to seal.
