Italian Rainbow Cookies

Italian Rainbow Cookies


  • 8 Eggs
  • 4 sticks of Butter (softened)
  • 6 Teaspoons of Almond Extract
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Red, Yellow, Green Food coloring
  • 1 Bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Apricot Jam 18 oz
  • Seedless Raspberry Jam 18 oz
  • 12 X 18 cookie sheet


  1. Mix all ingredients together (except food coloring, chips and jam)
  2. Separate batter into 3 different bowls.
  3. Add food coloring to each separate bowl (one colour to each bowl) *about 20-25 drops of each
  4. Preheat oven to 350, spray cookie sheet with Pam
  5. Spread one bowl of batter in cookie sheet (make sure batter is spread evenly. Making sure it's even is tricky..)
  6. Bake about 10 minutes.
  7. Do the same for the other 2 bowls.
  8. Spread apricot jam on first layer, place second layer on top, spread raspberry jam on second layer, place third layer on top.
  9. Cover and place something heavy on top (I use a heavy cutting board) and refrigerate overnight.
  10. Next day, melt chocolate and spread over the third layer (sides as well) Add sprinkles if you want.
  11. Place in refrigerator until chocolate hardens, cut into squares.


  1. Um, this is my friends picture and recipe. I don’t see a credit at all here, that’s really not ok to use someone else’s recipe and picture and not even give them credit for it.

  2. If you’re going to use my recipe and photo, it would have been nice to at least give me credit.
