2 cups butter, softened
2 1/4 cups white sugar
2 egg yolk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract or almond extract
1 teaspoon salt
5 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup red sugar crystals
1/2 cup orange sugar crystals
1@ cup yellow sugar crystals
1/2 cup green sugar crystals
1/2 cup blue sugar crystals
1/2 cup purple sugar crystals


In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar on high for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add egg, yolks, vanilla, and salt; beat well to combine.

On low, gradually beat in flour. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 6 inch log, wrap in saran wrap, and chill 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.

Roll one dough log at a time into one color of sugar crystals. Then wrap again in saran wrap. Continue until each log is rolled in a different color and wrapped. Refrigerate completed rolls for 3-8 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut logs into 1/4 inch thick slices and place on a greased baking sheet, 1/2 an inch apart. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until golden. Let cool 2-3 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
