Hi everyone, Happy Monday! :D I want to share these cookies I made with my friend last week, called Jello cookies! On one of my many days of looking at DIYs and recipes, I found this recipe for these cookies.
-3.5 cups of flour
-1 teaspoon of baking powder
-1.5 cups of salted butter (softened)
-1 cup of sugar
-1 teaspoon of vanilla
-4 (3 oz) packages of jello (any flavor)
- Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until it is light and fluffy. Blend in the egg and vanilla. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat into flour mixture.
- Divide the dough into 4 sections. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons 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 and colorful.
- Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll it in the extra jello from the packets. Place the balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Flatten it with the bottom of a bowl.
- Bake 8 to 10 min at 350 on lined baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets 2 min. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
Tadaaa! The final result. To be honest, I wasn’t a great fan of these cookies. They were fun to make but because of the large amount of butter, the dough fell apart easily :( Maybe they weren’t meant to be cut out haha. Also, there wasn’t much taste because my friend and I followed the recipe and put 2 tablespoons of jello mix in. The flavor smell was strong but it didn’t taste like much… But I could see why it’d be great for kids to try! :)
There’s better pictures HERE of the jello cookies. I don’t understand how my cookies didn’t turn out pretty like that D:
Care to share any secrets to baking? ;)
