  3. Add in vanilla extract. Beat till well mixed.
  4. Add in flour mixture in gradually in 3 portions and mix on low speed. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed. It’s ready when the dough is soft and pliable. Texture is similar to Play-Doh.

Divide the dough and add in colour

  1. Divide the dough into 3 portions. Add in the food colouring and mix the dough evenly.

Place the different colours together and cut the cookie

  1. Pick out 1/3 cup of each colour of dough. Roll it into a rope about 5 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.
  2. On a clingwrap or baking sheet, place the ropes side by side. Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough till it’s ¼ inch thick.
  3. Cut the dough using a 2 to 2 ½ inch round shape cookie cutter so that each cookie has 3 colours.
  4. On a baking tray lined with baking paper, place the cookie with 2 inches apart.

  2. Bake the cookies for 7 to 9 mins till the edges are light golden brown.
  3. Cool for 1 min. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Prepare the white chocolate cream cheese ganache

  1. Microwave milk for 20 sec. Pour it over the white chocolate. Stir till the chocolate is fully melted. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Attached the K paddle to the Kenwood stand mixer. Beat the cream cheese, and vanilla. Gradually add the cooled chocolate and beat on high speed until smooth for about 3 min. #Tips: Do not attempt to overbeat as the fats will separate from the cream. The texture will lumpy instead of smooth.
  3. Once it ready, transfer into the chiller and let it rest for 5 mins. It will harden slightly and it will not melt in room temperature easily.
