- 3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 3-ounce packages JELL-O strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
- Mix together flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, beat butter until creamy then add the sugar and one box of the JELL-O strawberry-flavored gelatin mix, whipping until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla, and then gradually blend in the flour mixture.
- On a parchment-paper-covered baking tray, shape dough into a 1-inch round then flatten with the bottom of a glass. Sprinkle flattened cookies with the other box of JELL-O strawberry-flavored gelatin mix, evenly distributing between cookies to create the top crust.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
