Red, White and Blue... Cookies!
Start with a white cake mix. Mix 2 eggs and 3/4 c. Shortening. Separate batter into 3 bowls to color. I liked having more white than the other colors, but you could have as much in each as you want. Mix red food coloring one bowl and blue in another. Roll a ball of white batter, then pick up some red and blue and gently mix together (be careful to not mix too much or you may end up with a purple cookie). Roll into a ball. Bake at 350 deg for 10 min (I find this is the perfect time for my oven-adjust as you need to) these should be soft. Let cool then frost. They are pretty easy, but take a little more time than homemade Oreos.
