  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter softened (not melted!)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 3oz boxes Jello Cherry, Orange, Lemon, Lime, Wild Berry, and Grape
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a cookie sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter with a paddle attachment until creamy. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla and beat until combined. Gradually add in flour and baking powder until blended.
  3. Divide dough into 6 sections. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Jell-o onto each section. Knead together with dough. If you don't like the color you achieve with the Jello, then add food coloring until you like the color.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll the dough balls in the remaining jello from the packets. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat and flatten with the bottom of a cup.Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire rack and cool completely.
