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


  • 1Cream together butter, sugar, Jello, egg and vanilla extract.
  • 2Add baking powder and flour in small quantities. Mix well. Dough will be stiff but workable.
  • 3You 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.
