Fruit Coolers in Lime, Lemon, Orange, and Mixed Berry

Fruit Cooler Cookies

Makes about 2 dozen

  • 2 cups butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups powdered sugar for coating
  • 1/2 small box Jello**, flavor/color of your choice (or Koolaid packet)

**Koolaid makes a more tart result….Jello offers more color and flavor options

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream the butter in a mixing bowl. Beat in the vanilla. Mix the ¾ cup powdered sugar, salt and flour together, and then mix into the butter until well combined.

Roll walnut sized pieces of dough into balls, and place them one inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, or until just beginning to turn golden around the bottoms. Remove and allow to cool for 3 minutes. Place 3 cups powdered sugar and jello mix in a large bowl, and mix well. Roll the cookies in powdered sugar mixture and set aside. When completely cool, roll again in powdered sugar. Store in airtight container for a week

    Those look like fun Christine. I remember my uncle would make something similar but in square and then he would wrap them like Bonbons for Christmas and little joke would be printed on the butter paper inside. =) Can’t wait to try your recipe!
