Let a cake mix jumpstart your cookie making and do away with unnecessary measuring.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
cup butter or margarine, softened
teaspoon vanilla or 1/2 teaspoon almond extract or lemon extract
cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). In large bowl, beat cake mix, shortening, butter, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on high speed 1 minute.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each part 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered surface with cloth-covered rolling pin. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters into desired shapes; sprinkle with sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 inches apart.
Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until light brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. In microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on High 20 to 30 seconds or until melted; stir. Frost cookies. Stir together small amounts of water and food color. Paint colors on freshly frosted cookies, using fine-tip brush, then swirl colors with brush or toothpick to create marbled designs. Dry completely before storing.
Roll dough to an even thickness by rolling over two wooden dowels or rulers. Use dowels or rulers of the desired thickness, and place them on opposite sides of the dough.
