My mother had gotten this recipe from a holiday recipe guide in a woman's magazine when I was just a child. We have kept them as a holiday favorite since then.

How to Make Jello Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream together butter, sugar, Jello, egg and vanilla extract.
  2. Add baking powder and flour in small quantities. Mix well. Dough will be stiff but workable.
  3. You can either force the dough through a cookie press or roll into a small ball. If making a ball, flatten the cookie with your thumb or a fork. Decorate with any type of sprinkles or colored sugar.

    Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and move cookies to a wire rack to cool. If you use a cookie press you will yield about 5 dozen cookies. If using the rolled ball you will yield about 3 1/2 dozen.
