Welcome to my Red Couch. Bright, festive, and tasty would describe these Jell-O Cookies. They are flavored with blueberry and cherry Jell-O and I love the turquoise and red colors together. They just remind me of the bright days of summer that will surely come; even though Spring has been a bit cold in my neck of the woods.
One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to craft with cookies. These were made with a Wilton Cookie Pop mold; if you don't have a mold, you could easily make them without a mold.. Check out my sidebar listing to see other Jell-O kitchen crafts.
Recipe for Jell-O Lollipop Cookies
3/4 cup butter or shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 (3 ounce) package of Jell-O -- I used cherry and blueberry and split the packages in half.
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups flour
Mix all ingredients, except Jell-O. If using two flavors of Jell-O, as I did, halve each Jell-O package and the dough and incorporate the different Jell-O flavors in each half of dough. If using Wilton Cookie Pop molds, just press dough into molds -- one half of each flavor. You may need to add a tad bit of flour to make the dough a bit more usable. If not using Cookie Pop Molds, roll dough into balls (at least 2 tablespoons) and flatten, and then insert sucker stick. For the sucker stick to hold, make sure your cookie is somewhat thick. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Add about 2 more minutes if using the Wilton Cookie Pop Molds. To help insure the sucker stick will stay in place, don't short the baking time.
