When I gave my dad the first taste of these he said "oooooo this makes me want to never eat the store bought bakery ones again... these are good!"
WOOOHOOO!! (oh in case you are wondering my gingerbread bagels are now safe and sound in my freezer, thanks again dad!)
Onto the cookies... these take some serious time. Perfect for a cold day in the Poconos where there is no TV reception and certainly no internet. Most of the time is inactive but make sure you have a good half day to make these. Oh and we don't have a stand mixer in PA... I have a new appreciation for my kitchen aid now!
So what are the 7 layers you ask?
You start and end with a layer of chocolate that is sandwiching a layer of green dough then a layer of apricot jam, then yellow dough, more apricot jam, and finally red dough.
my sister is a professional at stiring. she helped a ton by folding in the egg whites and then helping stir in the food coloring.
