What's better than coming home from school and finding these cookies with a cold glass of milk waiting? Your kids will love these tri-colour cookies that just beg to be eaten. This recipe comes from my newest addition of cookbooks...The Williams-Sonoma Baking Book that the Apple Spice Coffeecake came from. I made the dough up the night before and place in a 5 X 9-inch loaf pan, lined with wax paper. This morning, all I had to do was remove it from the pan, slice the dough in half lengthwise, then, slice the cookies into 1/4-inches slices. They bake up quickly and are really delicious. There are three distinct flavours, as well as, colours; vanilla layer has a hint of nutmeg, the pink layer has a 1/4 tsp. of strawberry oil, and the chocolate layer has 1-ounce of unsweeten chocolate, melted, and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. Another cookie, similar to this idea, is from an old Pillsbury cookbook "Chocolate Lovers", called "Cloverleaf Cookies. The three flavours in these are a chocolate, traditional chocolate chip, and peanut butter cookie. Kids loving eating the sections individually...heck, I love eating the sections individually.
This is definitely one I'll make again. Maybe, I'll do a "Spumoni" version. I'll pass it on when I do. Enjoy!
