Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup sugar divided
  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 jello mix small boxes
  • food coloring

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and line two baking sheets with silicone or parchment.
  • Cream together the butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. Add the vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda, and mix until combined.
  • Divide the dough into four equal portions (one for each color of jello mix), and add 1 1/2 tablespoons of jello mix to each portion. Add 3-4 drops of the same color of food coloring to each bowl. Mix until the color is even distributed throughout the dough.
  • Place the remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough into one inch balls, then roll each ball in the sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheets and flatten slightly with a glass.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies just slightly browned on the bottom and the tops look dry. Let cool 5 minutes on the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
