3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
3/4 t. salt
1 3 oz. package fruit-flavored jello
1 t. baking powder
2 3/4 cup flour
Cream together the shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, salt, jello, baking powder and flour. Mix well, until a soft dough forms. Roll into small balls and place on a hot, greased, waffle iron. Close lid and bake for approximately 2 minutes. Times will vary with waffle makers.
The above photo is of the recipe using Lemon jello. The photo below is of the recipe using Berry Blue jello. Little boys love the aqua-colored cookies! These are easy to make, although they can be somewhat time-consuming. However, children love them.
