Sweet Cherry Cookies


2 boxes white cake mix
1 cup butter, melted
2 eggs

Red Dough:
1 small box black cherry jello
1 T water
1/2 t red food coloring jell

White Dough:
1 T water
1/2 t almond extract.

1. In a mixing bowl, or your stand mixer (I obviously opt for my beloved stand mixer!) beat together the cake mix, melted butter and eggs.

2. Separate the dough in half. Add the jello, water and food coloring to one half of the dough.

3. To the other half of the dough add the water, and almond extract.

4. Shape each half into a big round ball. Then cut the ball into approximately 24 pieces.
5. Take a 1/2 red and a 1/2 white piece. Roll them together to make a marble like cookie.

6. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. The cookies will start to crack when they are done. Remove from the oven and let them continue to cook for about 2 minutes on the hot sheet.

7. Remove from the pan and finish cooling on wire rack.
