Ingredients

How to make it

  • 1. Heat oven to 375°F. Stir cookie mix, margarine, flour and egg in
  • medium bowl until soft dough forms. Divide dough evenly among 3 bowls;
  • tint each dough by stirring in a few drops of desired food color.
  • 2. 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 dough scraps, carefully lay
  • matching colors together.)
  • 3. 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.

    Made these and the nephews went wild for them. Made a double batch so I could take some over to the Church Sale. Girls loved them. :)

    These are so pretty! My children would surely love these. I always make cookies from cake mix but never thought of rainbow cookies. I bet my children would adore these little cookies. Thanks for the idea.
