In large mixer bowl mix margarine, sugar, egg, vanilla, and peppermint extract. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Blend into creamed mixture on low speed, scraping sides of bowl, until a soft dough is formed. Divide dough in half, removing one half to a small bowl. To the remaining hald add the red and yellow food colorings. Blend in to color all of that portion of the dough completely. Preheat oven to 375F. Working first with the plain uncolored dough, or having another person or child work with half of the dough, roll pieces of dough on counter or other flat surface to form "worm" or pencil shapes or various lengths. Begining in one corner and alternating the colors, place them diagonally in a jelly roll pan. The stripes should be close enough that when they are pressed down lightly they will touch. The dough is very forgiving and short "worms" can bw pinced together to form long ones in the pan. When the pan is full, press lightly to push strips together. Bake about 15 minutes at 375? until lightly golden brown. Cut immediately into sticks aproximately 1"x3". (depends on the pan!) Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and store air tight. Cookies may be "crisped" in a warm oven if needed to freshen them. Sprinkle with fresh sugar after reheating. This dough may also be formed into cane shapes. Make pencil sized "worms" and twist together. Bend one end for cane shape. Bake and dust with confectioners sugar. Store as bar cookies.
