Jell-O Cookies 11/19/2009

Filed under: Adrienne DeArmas,Desserts,Kayla DeArmas — dearmasa @ 9:13 AM


3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup jello (red or green)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 400F degrees.

Cream together butter, sugar, and jello.

Add eggs and lemon extract. Mix well.

Add dry ingredients, mix well.

Load dough into cookie press and press onto un-greased sheet pan. If cookies are red, decorate with green jello. If green, decorate with red.

Bake 6-8 minutes until golden brown on the edges.

Makes 2 dozen.



  • I use a standing mixer with the paddle attachment to make the dough.
  • The current cookie press I’m using is called “Perfect Cookie” cookie press (as seen on TV).
  • If you want the green cookies to be a darker shade of green, include green sugar in the 1/2 cup of granulated sugar – I add about 1/2″ to the bottom of the 1/2 cup and top off with regular sugar.


Thanks to “Just Helen” for the recipe modification:
