I remember making Jell-O cookies as a kid. When I asked my mother for her recipe she said, “You know I remember making them, but I think we just made it up. I don’t think I ever had a recipe.” I love women who can do this. However, I am not one of them. I have to measure and calculate and write things down. It took me a couple batches (Yes, I did try a batch with beans), but I finally came up with what I feel is the closest to the cookies we made as kids. Enjoy!
- 1 3-oz. box Gelatin Powder, Orange, or your favorite flavor*
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 cup Butter, softened**
- 1 ¼ cups Soft White Wheat Flour
- 1 cup Flour
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
Beat gelatin, powdered sugar and butter together, until mixed well. In a separate bowl mix flours and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix well. Your dough will look crumbly, but will be soft to the touch.
Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Press gently with the bottom of a cup or a cookie stamp. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
