Description

These are a holiday favorite from my childhood. They are great any time of year!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups Butter Or Margarine
  • 3 ounces, weight Jello (not Sugar Free), Any Flavor
  • 1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided
  • 2  Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2-½ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

Preparation

Mix butter, Jello, 1/2 cup sugar, eggs, and vanilla until creamy. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until combined.

Shape into 1″ balls. Roll the balls in the remaining sugar and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a glass or use a cookie stamp. Dip the glass in the extra sugar if it gets sticky.

Bake at 400ºF for 6-8 minutes, or until just golden at the edges. Cool and enjoy!

Makes 4 dozen.

These cookies freeze really well.

FABULOUS recipe! I used raspberry-cranberry jell-o and diced up some dried cranberries and added it to the mix and they were super! Easy to make…. can’t wait to try another flavor! Thx for sharing!!
