Jello Cookies

Hi Everyone

Last weekend was very busy we celebrated my daughters 5th Birthday. It was Under the Sea. I made some goodies such as Jello cookies, skittle marshmallows, and cake pops.

3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
4 pkg. of Jello 

Beat butter in large bowl until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Divide dough into 4 sections. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. of jello onto each section. Knead together with dough. You may want to add a few drops of food coloring to make the dough more vibrant. 
Shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of bowl or cup.
Bake 8 to 10 min at 350 on lined baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets for 2 min. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
Makes 2 dozen.
