Rainbow Slice Cookie Recipe

This cookie is so good. Because you have 3 flavors in one bite.

In 1986 I lived in Albany with my husband and my 2 year old son.  I remember thats when I started to take my cookies and cakes serious.  After working a full-time job during the day, and my nights I baked cookies, and sold them.   That’s when NECESSITY turned into LOVE, and that’s why you’ll love these cookies.
