Rainbow Spiral Cookies

These colorful swirled cookies will take your sugar cookie game to a whole new level! They are made just like a jelly roll cake. All you do is roll and slice away.

Ingredients
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp. confectioner's sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups of one to one gluten free flour baking mix (I get mine at nuts.com)
rainbow non pareils
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple food coloring

1. Mix together granulated sugar, confectioner's sugar, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and vanilla extract. Set both bowls aside.
2. Beat the butter with an electric mixer until pale light and fluffy. Add the sugar mixture and whip until you know their are air bubbles -light and fluffy. Gradually add the flour and mix until just combined.
3. Divide the dough into 2 balls and set one ball aside this will be your white spiral. Divide the other ball into 6 pieces and dye each the color of the rainbow or any color combo you see fit.

4. Create two layers. the uncolored dough on top of a silicone sheet rolled out into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle. Roll each colored ball of dough into a long sausage shape and line them up  on another silicone sheet 10 x 12 inch. Gently press together and place another silicone sheet on top. Roll out into a rectangle. Stack the sheets and put in fridge for 1 hour.

5. Remove uncolored dough silicone top. Flip the rainbow dough on top of the uncolored dough. Trim the edges. Position the dough with the long edge facing you and roll the dough away into a spiral. Wrap with silicone sheet or plastic wrap and place in freezer for one hour.

6. Slice the dough into 1/4 inch thick slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 325*F for 15 minutes, until the edges are golden. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy.
