Thumbprint cookies

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 10 minutes per pan

Thumbprint cookies

1 package (8 ounces) Sweet ’N Low low-fat white cake mix
3 tablespoons unsweetened orange juice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Cooking spray
5 teaspoons blueberry 100% fruit spread (or use a variety of 100% fruit spreads for a more colorful tray of cookies)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cake mix in a medium mixing bowl. Add orange juice and almond extract. Using an electric mixer, whip on low setting. As a dough begins to form, increase mixer to medium setting and beat for 2 minutes, or until a smooth dough is formed. Coat a baking sheet and your hands with cooking spray. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet. Press center of each cookie with your thumb. Fill thumbprint with 1/4 teaspoon blueberry spread. Bake for 10 minutes (cookies will turn light golden). Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.
