Make the crust:
Cream together butter and granulated sugar in the bowl of your standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until smooth (1-2 minutes).
Add egg & vanilla and beat until combined.
In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in your standing mixer and beat until evenly combined.
Remove dough from the bowl and shape it into a circle. Cover with saran wrap and let chill for 1-2 hours or overnight.
When you’re ready to make the dessert:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a get out a large baking sheet.
Roll out dough between two sheets paper or parchment paper into the shape of an arch.
Remove the top sheet of parchment and cut cloud shapes out by hand.
Transfer the rainbow-shaped cookie on the bottom sheet of parchment paper onto the baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned and the cookie looks a little puffy. Please do not overbake! (IF you overbake the cookie will lose its shape! This happened to me a couple of times and it CAN be fixed. If this happens, remove the cookie from the oven and immediately re-shape it into a rainbow & clouds using a spatula or a small metal spoon)!
Let the cookie cool on the baking pan until it has reached room temperature. To speed up this process you can put it in the freezer, refrigerator or outside on a cold day. Once the cookie is cooled, transfer it to your desired serving tray/dish before decorating.
Make the cream cheese frosting.
While the cookie is baking, make the frosting.
Add room-temperature cream cheese and butter to the bowl of your standing mixer and beat until combined (about 1-2 minutes).
Add vanilla, salt and powdered sugar and beat until combined and smooth. Set aside but do not chill.
Putting it together
Make sure the cookie crust is on your desired serving dish.
Spread the cream cheese frosting on top of the cookie until it is evenly covered.
Add the chopped fruit of your choosing in a rainbow design.
Sprinkle coconut on the clouds for a cute white look.
Chill for at least 2 hours before serving!
Cut in long pieces so that each piece has all of the rainbow-colored fruits on it!
