COOKIE SWAP - Jell-O Pastel Cookies by Regina

I loved these little fruity Jell-O cookies.  It's a nice change from the typical holiday cookies that we usually see.  You can make really any flavor that you like but Regina felt that the Strawberry and Lime were the best tasting out of the bunch.  I think these would make really cute Easter or Spring cookies. 


3 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ cups (3 sticks) butter or margarine, soften
1 cup sugar
2 pkg. jello (3oz. serving size)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 400*F.  Mix flour and baking powder & set aside.  Beat butter in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium until creamy.  Gradually add sugar and 1 pkg. of the dry jello, beating until light & fluffy.  Add egg & vanilla; mix well.  Gradually add flour mixture, beating until well blended.
Shape into 1 inch balls (or use a cookie scoop like I use) then flatten with the palm of your hand.
Sprinkle lightly with remaining pkg. of jello.  Bake 8-10 minutes until edges are lightly browned.
