Cookies To make the red dough:
Combine one of the cake mixes with 1/2 C melted butter, 1 egg,
1 T water, strawberry jello and the red food coloring.
Mix until everything is well combined and you have the color you like. You can add a bit more food coloring gel if needed.
Make the blue dough by following the directions in step 1...just add the blueberry jello and blue food coloring this time.
Roll them into 1 1/2 inch balls and place them on a sprayed cookie sheet.
Bake for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
I like to take mine out when the cookies have cracks running along the outside, then let them finish cooking on the hot sheet for about 3 minutes.
Let them cool completely before filling them with the icing.
Put all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and beat for about 2 minutes, or until the frosting is the desired consistency. (add a bit more powdered sugar if it's too thin. Add a bit more milk if it's too thick)
Frost the underside of each blue cookie, then add a red cookie to it! Enjoy!
**You can get creative with this recipe using any flavor of jello. Have fun and let your imagination run wild!
