How to Make It

Step 1

Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing sides of parchment to extend 4 to 5 inches over edges of pan. Coat parchment with nonstick spray.

Step 2

Prepare the Vanilla Layer: Combine flour, powdered sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until combined, 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand, about 5 times. Add egg yolks and vanilla and process until dough forms a ball, 30 to 40 seconds. Transfer dough to prepared baking pan. (Do not clean processor bowl) and press evenly into the bottom of the pan. Brush top of dough with milk.

Step 3

Prepare the Pink Layer: Combine flour, powdered sugar, and salt in processor bowl and pulse until combined, 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand, about 5 times. Add egg yolks, vanilla, and food coloring and process until dough forms a ball, 30 to 40 seconds. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and roll to a roughly 8-inch square. Press Pink Layer evenly on top of Vanilla Layer in pan. Brush top of dough with milk.

Step 4

Prepare the Chocolate Layer: Wipe out food processor bowl. Combine flour, powdered sugar, cocoa, and salt in food processor bowl and pulse until combined, 3 to 4 times. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand, about 5 times. Add egg yolks and vanilla and process until dough forms a ball, 30 to 40 seconds. Place dough ball on lightly floured surface. Press or roll dough into an 8-inch square. Press Chocolate Layer on top of Pink Layer. Cover pan with plastic wrap, and chill 1 hour.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 325°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using the ends of the parchment as handles, lift dough out of pan. Cut dough into quarters and cut each quarter crosswise into 18 slices. Arrange slices 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets.

Step 6

Bake until firm to the touch, 14 to 15 minutes. (Do not let cookies brown) Cool on sheets about 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely, about 20 minutes.
