Stir or knead in green gel food color into 1 bowl and red gel food color into other bowl. Leave third dough portion white. Drop tablespoonfuls of all colors of dough in random pattern into pan.

    Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Use foil to lift from pan; pull foil away from edges. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Expert Tips

  • For a festive look, sprinkle cookies with 2 teaspoons white sparkling sugar or granulated sugar before baking. White sparkling sugar can be found in the baking aisle at the grocery store.
  • Kids will love helping press the three different colors of dough into the pan to create a unique marbled appearance.
  • Cut cookies into triangles instead of squares, if desired.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container in single layers between parchment or waxed paper at room temperature up to 3 days. Cookies can be frozen up to 2 months. To thaw, let stand uncovered at room temperature 1 to 2 hours.
