Neopolitan Cookies

 

Ingredients:

2-1/2 Cups Flour

1-1/2 Cups Sugar

1 Cup Butter, Softened

1 Large Egg

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Almonds

Red Food Coloring

1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts

1/4 Cup Good Cocoa Powder

Directions:

Line the bottom of a loaf pan with waxed paper.

With an electric mixer combine flour, sugar, butter, egg, baking powder, vanilla, and salt; beat for 3 minutes. Divide the cookie dough into 3 equal parts.

Part 1: mix in the almond extract and 5 drops red food coloring (this is the pink/red dough).

Part 2: mix in the chopped walnuts (this is the white dough).

Part 3: mix in the cocoa (this is the brown dough).

In the loaf pan, spread each part of the dough one on top of the other, pink, white, and chocolate; cover the pan and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a cookie sheet or spray using non-stick cooking spray.

Turn out the dough from the pan and cut loaf lengthwise in half, then crosswise, then cut pieces of dough to make about 15 cookies from each piece. Bake each batch for 8-10 minutes or edges begin to brown.
