Italian Rainbow Cookies Recipe (7 Layer Cookies)

Who doesn’t love a delicious and pretty rainbow cookie? These cookies are popular in many different countries, but they originated in Italy. These cookies are perfect for the holidays as they’re made with layers of almond-flavored dough that are baked and then filled with frosting or jam.

They’re also called 7 layer cookies since they’re (as you guessed it) made with 7 layers. Those layers are: red, yellow, and green almond cake, with jam/frosting between the cake layers, and then chocolate layers on the top and bottom.

If you’re looking for a pretty pastry to add to your next gathering, look no further than the Italian rainbow cookie. Today, we’re going to show you how to make these cookies yourself!
