  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • cup canola oil
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Red or blue food coloring
  • Vanilla, raspberry and lemon extract


  • Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add egg and oil, beating well. In another bowl, whisk 2-3/4 cups flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Gradually beat into creamed mixture, adding flour if needed, until dough forms a ball.
  • Divide dough into 3 portions. Add red food coloring and vanilla extract to one portion. Add blue food coloring and raspberry extract to the second portion. Add lemon extract to the untinted portion.
  • Shape each portion into a 10-inch-long block. Place red, white and blue logs side by side. Lightly press blocks together. Wrap and refrigerate until firm, 30 minutes. Unwrap and cut dough crosswise into 1/4-in. slices. Place 1 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate the cookies to set the shape.
  • To ensure the cookies maintain their shape during baking, begin by removing the tray from the Typhur Dome. Line the bottom of the basket with a layer of aluminum foil, followed by a layer of parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  • Carefully place the cookies in the cooking tray. Return the tray to the Typhur Dome.
  • Bake the in "Roast" mode for 10 minutes at 355°F/180℃.
  • Remove the cookies from the tray.
  • Try sandwiching two cookies together with a popsicle stick and melted white chocolate or your favorite frosting.
