I combined a couple of recipes to come up with this one after being inspired by cookies I saw on the cover of a magazine. The dough tends to be a bit sticky, so make sure your knife is sharp when cutting the petals; you may need to spray it with non-stick cooking spray as well. We like these cookies made with black cherry or cherry Jell-O. The additional food coloring makes the color a bit more vivid. Use red paste food coloring for a really bright presentation. These cookies would also be cute for Easter, by using lemon, lime or orange-flavored Jell-O.
