I tried my first rainbow cookie from a coworker recently, and immediately fell in love with it. Since she got them from a bakery in NY,and I live no where near there, I searched and found this recipe. The recipe was not all that complicated, the worst part was separating the dough into 3 parts and spreading it in the pans. I will add that it is VERY important to beat the egg whites and fold them into the batter, another reviewer stated that they opted not to do this part and that it is not necessary, but this step adds a much needed texture for these cookies!!! Something I would change would be to add more Almond Extract to the dough. I added about a teaspoon as one reviewer stated, but I think next time I will up it to one and a half or maybe even two. I used seedless raspberry preserves, and maybe I used too much, but it overwhelmed the almond cookie flavor, so I dont know if using jam instead of preserves would be less intense or not? My husband said they tasted like tiny jelly sandwiches and couldnt taste the "cookie" part which disappointed me because I thought these would be a hit. I added shortening to the melted chocolate and had no problem with it cracking when sliced. I am giving this recipe 4 stars, in the hopes that my next batch will turn out much better!!
