Jell-O Cookies

These are light and tasty!  They are easy to make and you can make them in whatever color or flavor you want.  I'm already thinking about making them in school colors or team colors.  Your cookies can now match your party color scheme!  Only a girl would get excited about stuff like this!

3 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups of butter, softened
1 cup of sugar
2 pkg. (4 serving size each) jell-o brand strawberry flavor
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a separate bowl mix flour and baking powder, set aside.  Beat butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy.  Gradually add sugar and one package of dry jell-o.  Beat 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 cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.  Flatten with bottom of a clean glass.  Sprinkle lightly with remaining dry jell-o.

Bake 8-10 mins. or until edges are lightly browned.  Remove from baking sheets to wire racks to cool completely.  Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Makes 5 dozen cookies or 30 servings, 2 cookies each.
Create a festive cookie platter.  Make a second batch using jell-o lime flavor.
