Jello Cookies

Comment on this recipe

I found this recipe in a ladies' magazine 35 years ago. Mom and I retrieved her old cookie press from the back cupboard. I've been using this recipe every Christmas since then, thinking of Mom while the pretty pastel cookies bake at the holiday time.

Ingredients

4 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
1-1/2 cups butter
1 cup sugar
1 package (3 ounces) gelatin, any flavor
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Decorative sugars

Instructions

Sift flour with baking powder; cream butter and gradually add sugar and dry gelatin. Cream well after each addition. Add egg and vanilla. Beat well. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Mix until smooth. Force dough through a cookie press. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, decorate as desired with sugar crystals. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 5 dozen.
