What a wacky week! Wacky weather. Brrrrr. Wacky start of school. Thank you teachers! 2020 is just wacky. So this Saturday we are going right along with the wackiness and trying a new, possibly wacky, recipe. Jello sugar cookies. Sounds wacky, right? Tastes wonderful! Trust us!!!
- 1 1/2 cups butter flavored Crisco
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
- 12 ounces jello mix (3 packages)
Preheat oven to 350°F degrees. In a large bowl, cream together Crisco and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in egg white and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and cream of tarter. Gradually add flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
Divide the dough into three sections. Sprinkle two tablespoons of jello mix into each section and then knead the dough until combined. You can add a few drops of food coloring in, if you’d like the color to be more vibrant.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. If desired, you may roll the balls into the extra jello powder or sugar for a sweeter cookie. Then place dough onto the baking sheet about two inches apart. Flatten the dough with the bottom of a cup or bowl to allow the cookies to cook evenly.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.
