Jello Cookies

Jello CookiesBrightly colored cookies in a wide array of flavors.  Strawberry, raspberry, lime, lemon or orange, you can use any Jell-O flavor you like.  The best thing is these cookies do not only taste great, they are also very easy to make!  Here is an easy dessert recipe for Jello Cookies!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 3 oz package Jell-O gelatin mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Procedures:
Pre-heat oven to 400°.

Cream the butter, shortening, sugar and Jell-O mix. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat on medium speed until well mixed. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder. On slow speed, add the dry mixture, adding a little at a time. Mix well.

The dough will be fairly soft, but not sticky.  Roll dough into 1″ to 1 1/4″ balls.  Use a scoop to make my cookies more uniform in size.  Roll in a bowl with about 1/2 cup of granulated sugar in it, completely covering the exterior of the dough ball. Place on a cookie sheet pan  about 2″ apart. Using a flat-bottomed glass, press the dough to about a 3/8″ thickness.

Sprinkle the top with colored, chunky sugar.  Very lightly tap the chunky sugar into the cookie.

Bake the cookies for 6 to 8 minutes to achieve soft and chewy texture. Bake them a bit longer if you want your cookies crisp!  Cool cookies on a rack.  Make other flavors while baking or cooling the first batch.

Store cookies in a air-tight containers.  This recipe makes 36 Jello Cookies.
