1 Cup of granulated sugar
1 Large egg
1 Stick butter, softened
3 Cups of all-purpose flour
2 Teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 Tablespoon of milk
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
Red gel food coloring
Yellow gel food coloring
- Purple gel food coloring
Blue gel food coloring
In a large bowl, add together the sugar, egg, butter, milk, and vanilla. Cream together. There shouldn't be any lumps in the mixture.
Next, you're going to want to grab a different bowl and sift together the baking soda, salt, and flour.
Once you have that done, start to slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until the dough forms together. This can get sticky at times, but keep going.
Once it's mixed together really well, you're going to want to divide out the cookie dough into 4 parts.
You should have for different dough sections at this point in time. Add in the gel food coloring to the four different parts and mix. Once you do this, you're going to have This will a red, yellow, purple, and blue ball of cookie dough.
Add the color to each. Once done, wrap each ball in plastic and put in the fridge for 30 minutes. Doing this allows the dough to cool and firm up just a bit.
After 30 minutes has passed, take the cookie dough out of the fridge. Grab a baking sheet and make certain that you have parchment paper on it as well.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Choose a color to start with but the red is the easiest to remember so start there. Take the red cookie dough and roll it flat or until it's like 1/4 inch in thickness. Set aside.
Next, roll out the yellow dough of the same thickness and size as the red dough. Place directly on top of the red dough.
Do the same steps for the blue and the purple dough. You should have four different dough colors that are all the same size and thickness at this point.
Next, you're going to roll up the entire layered dough unto a cylinder shape.
Once that is done. you're going to cut slices from the cookie dough cylinder that are about ½ an inch thick. (you're just going to be eyeballing these sizes)
Place each sliced cookie on the lined baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before giving them a try.
