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 3/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 0.6 oz (large) package Jell-O, any fruit flavor (I went with sugar-free raspberry)
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 - 1 cup sugar (depending on preference, and Jell-O type used)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Combine flour, baking soda, and Jell-O packet and mix thoroughly.
- Cream butter and sugar together.
- Add egg and vanilla to butter mixture.
- Gently add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until combined.
- Chill for 1 hour, until firmed.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Roll on floured surface (may need to sprinkle dough surface with flour to keep rolling pin from sticking).
- Cut into shapes as desired (I went with hearts, as these were for a friend's anniversary).
- Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake on middle rack of oven for 5-7 minutes.
- Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
