2 Baking Sheets
Parchment Paper


  • 2 ½ cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Peppermint extract
  • Red and Green gel food colouring


  • Preheat oven to 350F, Line 1 large baking sheet with parchment paper, spray with pan spray.  Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and peppermint extract until well combined and smooth.  Pour into the bowl with the dry mixture, stir to combine.
  • Divide dough in 3 even pieces. Take one of the three, divide it in half. Set one of those halves aside - this will be dyed green.
  • Split the remaining half in 2 even pieces, add one each to the original 2 pieces that had not been further divided. You should have 2 larger pieces and one piece much smaller.
  • Use green food colouring to tint the smallest piece green, and red food colouring to tint one of the larger pieces red.
  • Divide each dough up into a bunch of pieces, pile together randomly. Gently squeeze together and knead / fold a few times to marble. Don’t over handle, or the colours will go muddy.
  • Divide dough in half, form into 2 long, wide loaves on the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on the outside.  Remove from oven, turn heat down to 250F.
  • Allow loaves to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cutting on a slight diagonal, slice each loaf into ½" slices.
  • Arrange slices on the pans.  Bake for 15 minutes, flip each piece over and bake for another 15 minutes, or until desired texture.
  • Remove from oven, allow to fully cool.
