Recipe of the Week: 12/05/2013

This recipe of the week comes from Unity of Traverse City. The church will host its annual cookie sale fundraiser Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 3600 Five Mile Road.

Jello cookies

31/2 c. flour

1 t. baking powder

11/2 c. salted butter softened

1 c. sugar

1 egg

1 t. vanilla

4 (3 oz) packages of jello (any flavors)

Beat butter in large bowl with a mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Divide dough into four sections. Sprinkle two tablespoons of jello onto each section. Knead together with dough. You may want to add a few drops of food coloring to make the dough more vibrant.

Shape dough into one-inch balls. Roll in the extra jello from the packets. Place, two inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of bowl.

Bake for eight to 10 minutes at 350° on lined baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets two minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
