These were really easy to make.
They would be a fun addition to your 4th of July party.
You don’t have to cut them out as stars, but it makes it more festive.
Original Recipe From Kraft
What You Need:
3.5 cups flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1.5 cups salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Cherry (or strawberry etc.) Flavor Gelatin, divided
HEAT oven to 400°F.
MIX flour and baking powder. Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and 1 pkg. gelatin; beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
SHAPE dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass. Sprinkle with remaining dry gelatin mix.
KNEAD the dough and roll it out to cut out shapes. You may need a little bit more flour if you choose to do it this way.
BAKE 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
For best results, use the same flavor of JELL-O Gelatin for both the cookie dough and sprinkling on top.
