Jell-O Sugar Cookies

Everyone loves a sugar cookie. But sometimes the baker gets bored of the same ol' recipe. Thankfully, the miracle of Pinterest can help alleviate recipe boredom.

I saw this pin, and loved it, so I made my own version.

Note: The batter spreads out. I tried to make heart shapes, and they cooked into blobs. The taste is delightful, so nevermind about the shape- drop 'em in spoonfuls on the cookie sheet and enjoy!


  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and Jell-O packet and mix thoroughly.

  2. Cream butter and sugar together.

  3. Add egg and vanilla to butter mixture.

  4. Gently add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until combined.

  5. Chill for 1 hour, until firmed.

  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  7. Roll on floured surface (may need to sprinkle dough surface with flour to keep rolling pin from sticking).

  8. Cut into shapes as desired (I went with hearts, as these were for a friend's anniversary).

  9. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

  10. Bake on middle rack of oven for 5-7 minutes.

  11. Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
