Neapolitan Cookies

“So much fun to slice and make these Neapolitan Cookies! Even with the strawberry extract the strawberry flavor was too subtle for me so next time I will double the amount to see what happens. Even after putting the baking sheets in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to going into the oven, the cookies spread a little bit and looked “pillowy”. But they were easy to reshape, using a spatula, when they came out of the oven.”
