I lately have this fascination with french macaroons. They are so pretty, so good and did you know they are so EASY to make! Although mine are not the prettiest, they are definitely really tasty! I made some this green with gold speckled french macaroon cookies recipe in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this month!
One of my favorite things to bake is cookies, especially during the winter months and holidays! I recently tried a Chocolate Mint Thumbprint Cookie recipe that I found in one of my old Betty Crocker recipe books.
One of my favorite types of cookies that I like to bake is my Snickerdoodles Cookie recipe. I remember the first thing I learned how to bake in my Home Ec class my junior year was Snickerdoodles and I have been baking them ever since!

There are times when you get creative with the items in your pantry. The other day I wanted to make sugar cookies but I wanted them to try something different. Thats when I seen the box of Strawberry Jello in the pantry calling my name. I looked at the ingredients in the package and the first ingredient was SUGAR. That is when I decided to use some of the jello in place of sugar in my basic sugar cookie recipe.
I normally use eggs when I make these cookies but as I am making the batter I realize my husband had used all the eggs for breakfast. I replaced the egg with vegetable oil which gives these cookies a more chewier texture.
Here is my recipe I used for the yummy and colorful strawberry flavored cookies.
- 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1¼ cup butter (room temperature)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup strawberry jello (powdered)
- 2 TBS vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a mixing bowl add butter, sugar and jello mix and stir until creamy. Add oil and vanilla and mix.
- In another bowl add baking flour, baking powder and mix well.
- Add dry mixture to wet mixture and stir until well blended.
- Make 1" balls and place on non-stick cooking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.
- Remove from oven, place on cookie sheet to cool.
What flavor of jello would you want to try in these cookies?
