Hello! It’s Jello time!
Did you know we have two different types of bulk gelatin here? Most of our gelatin’s are the traditional, just like jello, but we also have a natural version. What is the difference you’d like to know? Well, I’m glad you asked. The natural version uses unrefined cane sugar and no food coloring! It still tastes and looks great, plus it’s better for you. Obviously the traditional is just that – traditional. Directions are on the package for both.
3.5 cups flour (for GF substitute our GF Meister flour + an extra 1/2 t. baking powder)
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 cups salted butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 T. jello (you can use any flavors you want, but grape will turn out gray)
(all ingredients available here)
Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide dough into 4 sections. Sprinkle 2 Tb of jello onto each section. Knead together with dough. Add a few drops of food coloring to make the dough more vibrant, if desired. Wash children’s hands, play and have fun. When done, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in the extra jello. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of bowl. Bake 8 to 10 min at 350 on lined baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets 2 min. Remove to wire racks and cool completely. Makes 4 dozen. Stop in this week for a sample cookie made with natural gelatin!
