{ JELLO COOKIES } recipe



I saw these on pinterest of course and I knew I just had to try them for the kids. I mean what kid doens't love jello or cookies.  So to combine them, thats a yes, please! 
So last week we finally sat down to have a baking day.  We made frozen smores too that I will share next week with you. 
First I want to give credit for where I found this recipe.  It was on the blog I {heart} naptime.

 J E L L O cookies
Yield: 2 dozen
Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Ready In: 30 mins



Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
  2. Divide dough into 4 sections. Sprinkle 2 Tb of jello onto each section. Knead together with dough. You may want to add a few drops of food coloring to make the dough more vibrant.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in the extra jello from the packets. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of bowl.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 min at 350 on lined baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets 2 min. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
These were alot of fun to make and it was fun for us to taste each flavor.  There was a little of each color left so in the end we rolled 2 rainbow cookies for the boys.  They loved those. 

Have you ever made anything with Jello, other than Jello?  Do you have a fun twist on a cookie recipe?  Id love to hear it.

  2. Hi came across your recipe today and want to make these cookies what I was wondering is if the cookies take on the taste of the jello?

    1. Hello there. It is more like just enough to flavor them but not be overpowered with flavor.
