Around our house, we have a few Valentine's decorations up and for the next few weeks, I'm planning on intentionally focusing in on showering my children with a little extra love, encouraging them to show love towards others and of course, trying to be more intentional about showing my husband love.
Yesterday, the kids and I made a batch of these Valentine Jello Cookies. A batch of these cookies is on the smaller side, perfect for a few snacks with your kids and a couple days worth of sneaking into your hubby's lunch box.
Valentine Jello Cookies
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 6oz package Jello mix (any flavor you like)
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and Jello mix and then set aside. In a medium sized bowl, beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Beat in the egg and the vanilla. Gradually blend in flour mixture.
Chill dough for at least a half hour and then roll out with floured rolling pin, on a generously floured surface. Dough will be on the sticky side so, adding extra flour might be necessary.
Cut the dough with cookie cutters and then place cookies on an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 5-7 minutes, or until edges barely brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to completely cool.
Yield: Approx. 2 dozen small heart shaped cookies.
