What's at the end of the rainbow? A plate full of colorful, easy-to-make, cake-like cookies! Our scrumptious Rainbow Cookies fit any entertaining from the holidays to a special occasion.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 (18-½-ounce) package yellow cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 teaspoon red food color
  • 1 teaspoon green food color
  • 1 teaspoon yellow food color
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar raspberry jam, melted
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat 3 separate 9- x 13-inch baking dishes with cooking spray, line with wax paper, and coat again with cooking spray.
     
  2. Stir almond extract into cake batter and divide batter evenly into 3 small bowls. Stir red food color into one bowl, green food color into another bowl, and yellow food color into third bowl. Pour each color batter into a separate baking dish and spread evenly. The layer of batter will be very thin, that's okay.
     
  3. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; let cool completely.
     
  4. Place red layer top side down on a cutting board and remove wax paper. Spread half of raspberry jam evenly over top, then place yellow cake layer top side down over jam. Remove wax paper and spread remaining jam over yellow layer. Place green cake layer on top, leaving wax paper in place. Place a baking sheet on top to gently press the layers together.
     
  5. Chill 1 hour, then remove from refrigerator and remove wax paper. Spread a thin layer of melted chocolate over top and allow to harden slightly. Cut into 1- x 2-inch cookies and serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
