Jell-o Cookies Mix in a Jar
Mix well in big bowl with wire whisk:
1/2 C. sugar
1 (3 oz.) package Jell-O – any flavor (orange, lemon, cherry)
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2-1/2 C. flour
This makes about 4 cups mix, enough to fill a quart sized jar. To give as a gift, place the lid on the jar and cut a piece of fabric in a circle, that is several inches larger than the jar lid. Pinking shears make a nice edge. Secure the fabric to the lid with a rubber band. Attach the directions to the jar with a ribbon or raffia
Attach these directions for baking the cookies….
Mix 3/4 cup shortening, 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla together in a bowl.

Bake at 350° F. for 7-10 minutes until done but not browned.
