Aren’t they pretty?

These rainbow cookies are simple enough to make as an after-school treat for your kids, but they would also be adorable for a Rainbow Birthday Party or even a Rainbow Loom Birthday Party. And, of course, they would be great for any St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Need an even easier treat? Use store-bought frosting. I won’t tell. (But I promise, the cream cheese frosting is really easy!)

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in mixer. Add powdered sugar and beat until the frosting reaches the consistence desired. Add more sugar if you’d like it sweater.

Place about a tablespoon size dollup of frosting onto a vanilla wafer. Place another wafer on top and lightly squeeze the two cookies together to form a sandwich and even out the layer of frosting.

Roll the sides of the exposed frosting into rainbow sprinkles.

Serve immediately or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
