Spumoni Slices - Italian Christmas Cookies

1/2 c Shortening
1/2 c Margarine or butter
3 c All purpose flour
1 c Sugar
1 Egg
2 tb Milk
1 ts Vanilla
1/2 ts Baking soda
1 Square (1 ounce) semi-sweet Chocolate, melted and Cooled
4 ts Milk
1/3 c Chopped candied red Cherries
1/2 c Chopped pistachio nuts
1/4 ts Rum flavoring
Few drops green food coloring

Beat shortening and margarine or butter about 30 seconds or till softened. Add half the flour, the sugar, egg, 2 Tbsp. milk, vanilla, baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Beat till thoroughly combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining flour.
Divide dough into thirds. Into one portion, mix chocolate and 2 tsp. of the milk. Into second portion, mix cherries. Into third portion mix nuts, remaining milk, flavoring, and enough green food coloring to tint dough.

Bake in 375 oven 8 to 10 minutes or till edges are lightly browned. Remove and cool on rack. Drizzle with powdered sugar icing tinted green or with melted chocolate. Makes about 84
