This was really fun! I found the recipe on Pinterest which took me to I Heart Naptime. Have you seen her blog? Amazing!!!
These are called Jello cookies. The super full part of this is that the kids can play with this like playdough! The boys had fun playing with the dough and tasting each flavor before we baked them.
Here’s what you need:
- 3.5 cups of flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1.5 cups of salted butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 (3oz.) packages of Jello
First we’ll beat the butter in a large bowl. Mix with a mixer until it’s creamy then you add the sugar and beat until a light and fluffy consistency. Blend in vanilla and sugar next.
Mix the baking powder and flour in another bowl then gradually beat the flour mixture into this bowl.
Divide dough into 4 sections and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of jello onto each section. We tried lime, cherry, strawberry and orange. Knead it into the dough. You can add a few drops of food coloring if needed. We only added one drop to the lime to make it more green.
Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the extra jello. Place them 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a bowl or do a criss cross with a fork. Either way is fun!
Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
