Raspberry poinsettia blossoms

So, I'm totally slow in getting my Christmas goodies out this year, so today I got busy and got half of it done.  Will get the other half done tomorrow.  This is what I started with in the morning because the dough had to refrigerate.  They were simple, and good, but actually quite sweet with the jello in there.  I used a sugar free jello mix because it is what I had on hand, and it worked fine.


  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened (I used butter)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box (4 serving size) raspberry flavored gelatin
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow candy sprinkles
  1. In a large bowl, bream butter, sugar, vanilla and egg.  Beat in flour
  2. Shape the dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.  cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Heat oven to 375.  On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls about 2 inches apart.  With a sharp knife, make 3 cuts in the top of the ball (to cut it in 1/6ths) about 3/4 the way through to make 6 wedges.  Spread wedges apart slightly to form flower petals.  (cookies will separate and flatten as they bake.)  Sprinkle candy sprinkles into center of each cookie.
  4. Bake 9-11 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown.  cool 2-3 minutes, remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
