I guess by now you know I'm absolutely crazy about Allsorts candies. I used them as a colorful topping for this cake when I celebrated my first year of blogging, and then recently on top of these mini cakes. I love their stripey graphic appeal and they're so full of happy color, I feel I should designate them as the new Sprinkle Bakes mascot.
I came up with the idea for these sugar cookies when I was developing an all-in-one cookie dough recipe for an upcoming holiday project. I started playing around with layering techniques and ended up with a stacked, stripey, slice-and-bake chocolate and vanilla dough. Just a trim here and a slice there - voila! An Allsorts twin!
These are pretty simple to make, and most of the real labor is in dividing and coloring the dough. At the end you'll probably have 12+ dozen bite-size cookies. That sounds like a lot but since the cookies are so small they don't take too much time to bake. You can also fit about 50 on a standard baking sheet.
