    1      tsp           vanilla
      1/2  tsp           baking soda
      1/4  tsp           salt

 Preheat oven to 375.  Unprepared baking sheet needed; set aside.  In a
 mixing bowl, combine margarine, egg white, milk, vanilla, and peppermint
 extract.  In another mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and
 salt.  Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened.
 Divide dough into halves.  Stir 1/2 teaspoon food coloring into 1 half of

 into a 12 x 11 rectangle.  Remove top sheets of waxed paper from plain
 dough and colored doughs.  Invert plain dough on top of colored dough.
 Peel off top sheet of paper.  From the long side, roll up jelly roll style,
 removing bottom sheet of paper as you roll.  Cut criss cross in half, then
 wrap and chill for 4 to 24 hours.  Cut rolls into 1/8 slice.  Place 2
 apart on unprepared cookie sheet.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
