Cupid's Raspberry Jell-O Cookies



  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (3 ounce) box raspberry Jell-O
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Using electric mixer and large bowl, combine shortening, butter or margarine, sugar, Jell-O, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until very creamy, then add flour, baking powder and salt. Dough will be extra thick, but mix thoroughly.
  3. Roll dough into small balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass covered with sugar.
  4. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes. Do not over-bake. Cookies should not be brown on edges.
