Rainbow Cookies-6 (1 of 1)

Rainbow Cookies are one of my favorites! Every year growing up my neighborhood would do a cookie exchange and rainbow cookies were always given by one family. They are a buttery chewy cookie that you can have fun making with your kids or grand kids, but be careful of that food coloring or else your hands will look like you are dying Easter eggs:) Hopefully this recipe will become a family favorite for you too!

Yield 4 1/2 Dozen
1 cup unsalted butter (880030, 36/1#)
