  • 1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened dutch process cocoa
  • 14 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 12 teaspoons banana extract
  • 1 drop yellow food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
  2. Remove dough from wrapper; reserve 2/3 of dough. Place remaining 1/3 dough in medium bowl; let stand at room temperature about 15 minutes.
  3. For flower centers, add cocoa to dough in bowl; beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Divide cocoa dough into 30 pieces; shape into balls. Place balls about 4 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
