Few cookies are considered as classic as a good, soft sugar cookie. Of course, cookies dressed up with chocolate chips or covered in frosting are just as delicious. But when it comes to an age-old cookie that everyone in the house will love, sugar cookies reign supreme.

How to Make Jell-O Cookies

Jell-O cookies are made using a sugar cookie dough as the base. We chose to make our cookie dough from scratch, but you can certainly make them much quicker (and with fewer ingredients) by using a store-bought mix. For multiple colors, you'll need a variety of Jell-O flavors. Or, choose to just try it out with one of your all-time favorites.


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • Jell-O powder, 4 different flavors

Tools You'll Need


Step 1: Cream the butter and sugar

First, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the egg and mix to combine.

Nation's Third-Biggest Pizza Chain to Open Dozens of New Stores

  Nation's Third-Biggest Pizza Chain to Open Dozens of New Stores The pizza chain beloved for its noteworthy deals has been baking up a plan to take its product wider—infiltrating one city in particular.It sounds like just before the pandemic, Little Caesars lucked out. For six decades, the pizza chain (which first opened in 1959) offered their pizzas only by pickup in stores. According to a report this week in Nation's Restaurant News, in February 2020, Little Caesars switched over to a customer-centered mobile ordering system to provide its first-ever pizza delivery service. That proved to be fortunate timing.

Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.

Step 3: Knead in the Jell-O powder

Divide the cookie dough into four sections. Place each section of dough in a small bowl and sprinkle 4 tablespoons of Jell-o powder into each bowl. Use your hands to knead the Jell-O powder into each section of dough until fully combined.

Step 4: Time to bake!

Use a cookie scoop to scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough. Roll the ball with your hands and flatten gently before placing it on a greased cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes until the edges just begin to brown. After 10 minutes, remove the cookies from the oven.

Let sit on the hot baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

If you love Jell-O, this recipe may sound super appealing right off the bat. However, if you're like me and not a fan of prepared Jell-O, it's hard not to be skeptical. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised!

First off, the cookies you'll pull out of the oven are beaming with color. Incorporating the Jell-O powder is such a fun and easy way to get color into the dough, rather than using food coloring. Another major bonus? It won't stain your hands! This is a great opportunity to get the kids involved, especially as the cookie dough seems just like Play-Doh while you're kneading in the color.

As for the flavor? That's where things get interesting. These cookies not only look fun and colorful, but they're ridiculously tasty—and borderline addictive. Who would have thought a cookie rolled in Jell-O powder would be this good? The fruity taste of each Jell-O flavor is subtle but it does come through, so keep that in mind. Lemon and lime Jell-O powder results in a more delicate flavor, while bolder fruit flavors such as strawberry and berry blue definitely come through more in the cookie. Overall, the exciting colors, the subtle fruit flavors and the slight tanginess the Jell-O powder brings to the mix make this cookie so much more intriguing than your regular old sugar cookie.

I Took All Social Media Apps Off My Phone 14 Months Ago, and I’m a Totally Different Person

  I Took All Social Media Apps Off My Phone 14 Months Ago, and I’m a Totally Different Person If Monday’s social media blackout has you picturing a life without constant social demands, maybe this is for you.What surprised me about the entire ordeal was the public's reaction after the blackout was over. Instead of the moaning and groaning that you usually expect online, when Instagram came back to life, many people took to their feeds to talk about how nice it was to not have the pressure of social media for a few hours. Some even claimed that maybe this was a sign to start taking mental health breaks from their social media every once in a while. Others even admitted they wished the social networks just didn't come back at all.
