Rainbow Cream Egg Cookies

Sent to me by a friend who thought these would be awesome to make at Holiday time.  They sure are beautiful to look at!

Ingredients:

1  Pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2  Cup margarine or butter, melted
1/4  Cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1 egg
3  food colors
White coarse sugar crystals or granulated sugar, if desired
1/2  Tub Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla ready-to-spread frosting

Directions:

Heat oven to 375º F.

Stir cookie mix, margarine, flour and egg until soft dough forms.

Divide dough evenly among 3 bowls; tint each dough by stirring in a few drops of desired food color.

For a variety of colors, make several batches of cookies.

Shape 1/3 cup of each color of dough into a rope about 5 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. Place ropes side by side and a little more than 1/4 inch apart on floured surface; roll until 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 2- to 2 1/2-inch egg-shaped cookie cutter so each cookie has 3 colors.

Sprinkle with sugar.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Repeat with remaining dough. (When rerolling doughscraps, carefully lay matching colors together.

For marbled cookies, mix colors of dough scraps- but don’t mix colors too much or they won’t be distinct.)

Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.

Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Spread frosting on bottoms of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies.

Makes 18 sandwich cookies

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
