Ingredient List

  • 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


  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.


  • 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.
