ohh jello cookies!! There so fun and bright and cheery..and quite easy to make.
Its so fun to taste all the flavors in the diffrent cookies. They would be so cute for a party and you could mix and match the colors.



3.5 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1.5 cups salted butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla 
4 (3 oz) packages jello - you can use any flavor you want.

Makes about 2 dozen..

Step 1: Instructions

1. Beat butter with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. 
Blend in egg and vanilla.

Step 2:

2.  Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. (I changed my attachment from a "whisk" to a "flat beater" (for cookie dough) attachment which worked great!)

Step 3:

3. Divide dough into 4 sections. And add 2 to 3 tablespoons of jello onto each section.
I didn't feel like kneading it into the dough, so i used the mixer which proly took longer then kneading it with my hands! :) 
You may want to add a few drops of food coloring to make the dough more vibrant. I only added food coloring to the orange and blue.
And the other thing you can do if you dont have food coloring is add more jello and it does help some.!

Step 4:

Then i mixed the other three colors just how i did the red..

Step 5:

5. Shape dough into roughly 1-inch balls. Roll in the extra jello from the packets.
Place about 2 inches apart, on cookie sheets with non stick paper on. Flatten with bottom of a bowl.
Don't make to flat because they do spread out when they bake so just flatten a little!

Step 6:

6. Bake for about 8 to 9 minutes at 350... Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely. Enjoy!

...hope ya'll enjoyed this insturctable!!! 
<p>looking tasty yum</p>
<p>in love with the colors! </p>
These taste like a sugar cookie infused with fruit flavor lifesaver favors.
Can you substitute margarine for the butter? I'm lactose intolerant, so I try to avoid milk-based products like the plague.
I use Butter flavored Crisco for most all my cookies &amp; it works like a charm!
yea, I'm sure you can. Butter and margarine are allot the same so i think it would work fine..
Just made them, but flippin hell they are sweet. I think you can leave out half of all the sugar because of the jelly...
Anyone try it? I wanna know if they taste good or not. <br>
They taste like the flavor of the jello.... but I'm not sure how to explain it exactly. <br>There good, you should try them.!
Jello and Cookies in the same phrase? I'm so in! :D They must taste like heaven!
Love It! :)
gracias!! ;)
Beautiful! Very well done, &amp; great pictures!
thank you! :)
