I love sending treats to school with the kids at different times during the school year.
These fun rainbow cookies are great for St. Patrick’s Day or just for anytime!
To make the cookies, use your favorite sugar cookie dough and split it into 6 pieces. The pieces don’t need to be equal in size…you’ll need more red than purple once you start stacking.
Use gel food coloring to knead rainbow colors into the dough. Wrap and refrigerate for a few minutes to firm up the dough.
Then, roll out the dough (outer layers a bit wider than inner layers) to a similar length. Then stack the dough and curve into a “U” shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for at least 1 hour or for several days if well wrapped.
To bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare baking sheets.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and cut into ¼ in slices, trimming any shaggy edges, as needed. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are set. Then cool and serve!
