3/4 c Butter or Margarine
1/4 c Sugar
1 ts Vanilla Extract
1 ts Almond Extract
1 pk Cherry Jello (3 oz)
2 1/2 c Flour
1 ts Baking Powder
Cream Butter, Sugar, Eggs, add Extracts and Jello Powder. Sift in
flour and baking powder.
Roll pieces of dough into 3/4″ balls. Place 3″ apart on ungreased
baking sheet, flatten with bottom of large glass. Sprinkle green
sugar around the edge, throw some Chocolate Streusels in the middle.
Nonpareils can be used, but that’s messy!
Bake in 400oF (preheated oven) for 6-8 min. Keep in tightly covered
container. Makes about 4 doz.
GREEN ONES: same as above, but use LIME JELLO (instead of Cherry)
LEMON EXTRACT (instead of Almond) DO use green sugar for the edges on
this one, too, I’ve tried red and it fades and doesn’t look good. The
green gets real intense, just right for X-mas.
