These cookies are a little complicated, but they will totally be worth all the effort when you slice the cookie roll to reveal a pretty rainbow heart.

All the intricate layers are seriously going to impress your friends. But don’t worry, the video shares a really cool tip to getting all the layers to come out even, so you don’t have to be a professional baker to make these — just seriously committed to making beautiful cookie art for Valentine’s Day.

Of course, to make the process simpler, you could use only one or two colors, but what’s the fun in that?

Here’s what you’ll need:
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
3 large egg yolks, at room temperature
2 1/2 cups cake flour
food coloring
