Here is a treat that represents many things to many people. It’s known as the Italian Rainbow, The Venetian and even The Seven-Layer Cookie (though only three layers are immediately apparent—just take a closer look!).
And that’s not where the identity crisis ends. These cookies are made with cake, after all.
Regardless, its green, white and red layers—said to represent the Italian flag—are immediately recognizable as Christmas colors.
That’s because they’re made with three different colors of sponge cake, and our Venetian Rainbow Cookies recipe includes layers of apricot jam in addition to hold all that goodness together. Buon appetito!
