Grandmas Festive Jell-O Cookies

Jello-Cookies

 

My mom used to make these cookies for Christmas with cherry and lime jello.  This is a sugar cookie recipe with a box of Jell-O added into the mix.  You can make them for any holiday such as Fourth of July using cherry and berry blue Jell-O for red, white and blue cookies.  You can have fun with this recipe and change it out for whatever the occasion.

 

Ingredients

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1/2 cup sugar

1-3 oz pkg Jell-O

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

Cream the butter, shortening, sugar and Jell-O. 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. You don’t need to refrigerate the dough before rolling.

Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

Roll dough into 1″ to 1 1/4″ balls and then roll in a bowl with about 1/2 cup of granulated sugar in it, completely covering the exterior of the dough ball. Place on the pan about 2″ apart. Using a flat-bottomed glass press the dough to about a 3/8″ thickness.

Sprinkle the top with sugar. Bake the cookies for 6 – 8 minutes.
