I made up a batch of these cookies for a Ladies' Tea this past weekend. They looked so festive! I can see the possibilities for making them work for many different holidays by changing the Jell-O color. I took them scrapbooking where Stacia and Kate asked for the recipe, so here you are, ladies:
JELL-O® Pastel Cookies
3-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. CALUMET Baking Powder
1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Gelatin, any flavor, divided
1 tsp. vanilla
PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Mix flour and baking powder; set aside. Beat butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar and 1 pkg. of the dry gelatin, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until well blended after each addition.
SHAPE dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of clean glass. Sprinkle with remaining dry gelatin.
BAKE 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
Stumpfs Notes: I divided my dough in half before adding the Jell-O. I added strawberry to one half, lime to the other. I mixed these up in the food processor and they were quick & easy!
