Bring festive color to your dessert table with beautiful cookies the resemble poinsettia blossoms.

Ingredients

3/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ raspberry-flavored gelatin
1
egg
2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons yellow candy sprinkles

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, vanilla, gelatin and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. On low speed, beat in flour.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 3 Heat oven to 375°F. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls about 2 inches apart. With sharp knife, make 6 cuts in top of each ball about three-fourths of the way through to make 6 wedges. Spread wedges apart slightly to form flower petals (cookies will separate and flatten as they bake). Sprinkle about 1/8 teaspoon yellow candy sprinkles into center of each cookie.
  • 4 Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown. Cool 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

During the holidays, time can be the greatest gift. Why not get together with a few friends and host a cookie exchange? This is a great recipe to share.

For a flavor twist, use strawberry-, cranberry- or cherry-flavored gelatin instead of the raspberry.
