3/4 C. shortening (part butter)
1/2 C. sugar
3 oz. fruit flavored Jello (use dry)
1 t. vanilla
2 1/2 C. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
Mix shortening, Jello, eggs and sugar. Blend in dry ingredients. Roll dough in 3/4 inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of tumbler dipped in sugar. These cookies look pretty on a tray with other cookies as they take on the color of the Jello used. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen.
