I love rainbow cookies!!!

After whipping up your batter, divide it between 3 bowls and add your 3 colorings.

Bake your three layers and sandwich them with jam when cool.


Melt some dark chocolate and pour it on...

Trim off the edges to prepare for cutting.

Break out the ruler for even cuts...


Divide into squares.
And serve!

Recipe time!!!
ON A SCALE OF 1-10, THESE ARE A "20!"
8 OUNCES ALMOND PASTE
3/4 C. SUGAR
1/2 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT
3/4 C. BUTTER (1 1/2 STICKS)
3 EGGS
1 C. FLOUR
1/4 TSP. SALT
2/3 C.RASPBERRY JAM
1 BAG GHIRADELLI BITTERSWEET CHOC CHIPS

LINE THREE 8X8 PANS WITH NONSTICK FOIL. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350. IN MIXER, BEAT ALMOND PASTE, SUGAR, EXTRACT AND BUTTER TILL CREAMY. ON MEDIUM, ADD EGGS TILL INCORPORATED. ON LOW, ADD FLOUR AND SALT. DIVIDE THE BATTER EVENLY INTO 3 BOWLS-APPROX. 1 CUP IN EACH. TINT EACH BOWL A DIFF COLOR:PINK, YELLOW, GREEN. SPREAD EACH INTO ONE OF THE PANS AND SPREAD EVENLY WITH OFFSET SPATULA. BAKE 10-12 MINS UNTIL JUST BEGINNING TO BROWN IN CORNERS. DON'T LET CAKES BROWN. COOL 30 MINUTES IN PANS. FLIP ONE LAYER ONTO COOKIE SHEET LINED WITH NONSTICK FOIL AND PEEL AWAY THE FOIL IT BAKED ON. SPREAD ON 1/3C. JAM. FLIP ANOTHER LAYER ONTO THE JELLY-REMOVE FOIL AND SPREAD WITH THE REST OF THE JAM. TOP WITH FINAL LAYER. IF YOU LIKE YOURS FLATTER, PLACE FOIL ON TOP AND WEIGH DOWN WITH HEAVVVY BOOKS AND/OR CAS TO FLATTEN WHILE CHILLING IN FRIDGE. I DID NOT WEIGH THESE DOWN AS I WANTED A TALLER PRESENTATION. ONCE FIRM, MELT CHOC CHIPS IN MICROWAVE AND SPREAD ON TOPS. CHILL AGAIN. LET SIT A FEW MINS AT ROOM TEMP BEFORE CUTTING OR CHOCOLATE WILL CRACK.

THIS RECIPE DOUBLES WELL-JUST USE 9X13 PANS.

Stopping by from Addicted to Recipes... I saw these in Bon Appetit (the colors of the Italian flag) and bought the ingredients to make them but never did. I'm going to have to now! That recipe called for orange marmalade but I bet raspberry is delicious. Time to dig my almond paste out of the pantry! Stop by my blog if you'd like :)

So cute! I love how bright the colours are. The way you've manage to pattern the chocolate is really cool, too.
