     OPTIONS....the same friend who gave me the feedback on using other
   flavorings also did the following.....In the ones she used the raspberry
   flavoring in she added a little red food coloring to the dough it didn't
   color completely but came our marbled looking.....She also made an
   indention in the top of the ones with the vanilla extract before cooking
   and filled some of the indentions with SF raspberry jam & some with SF
   peach jam - then cooked as per instructions....I see no reason why you
   couldn't use any flavor sugar free jam or use other flavorings/extracts...
