Rainbow Coat Cookies

Prep:

Cook:

Serves:

    We made these coat-shaped biscuits to celebrate the story of Joseph with the youngest children at the synagogue’s cheder, using templates made of baking parchment, which they cut around with butter knives.

    Ingredients
    225g softened butter
    110g caster sugar
    275g plain flour
    Food colouring

    Method

    Preheat your oven to 180°C and grease a baking tray.

    Cream together the butter and sugar to form a smooth, fluffy mixture.

    Sift in the flour a little at a time then knead into a ball of dough.

    Divide the dough into several smaller balls (we decided on 7 for the different colours of the rainbow).

    Take each ball and make a well in the centre. Add a few drops of your chosen food colouring.

    Work the colouring into the dough until the colour is bright and even. You can add a little more flour if the dough becomes too sticky.

    Roll out each different coloured ball flat and pile the different coloured doughs on top of each other. Roll the pile into a log shape.

    You can then cut slices off the log, each of which will have a rainbow of colours.

    Roll out a slice and cut out your shapes.

    Bake for 10–15 minutes until firm but not too browned.

    Cool on a wire rack.
