Striped Sugar Cookies

24 oz tube sugar cookie dough

1/4 cup pink or red sprinkles

2 drops red food coloring

Split dough in half. By hand, mix half of the dough with the two drops of food coloring. Roll out pink and white dough separately on a floured surface making sure each color is and even thickness. Cover the top of the pink dough with the sugar sprinkles. Using a pastry wheel cut each flat of dough into 1/4 inch strips. Remove alternating strips and replace with a strip from the other color. Place a sheet of plastic wrap over the alternated strips and using a rolling pin gently roll the dough to press strips together. Using cookie cutter shape of your choice cut out the cookies and bake according to the package directions.

Red Velvet Chocolate Lava Cookies

1 box red velvet cake mix

3 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

24 chocolate candies (I recommend Dove)

1/2 cup cream cheese icing

In a mixing bowl combine the cake mix, eggs and oil. Portion the mix into 24 dough balls. Using your hands work a piece of chocolate into the center of each dough ball completely enclosing the chocolate. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Drizzle cookies with cream cheese icing.
