GELATIN COOKIES

3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 pkg (3-oz) fruit flavored gelatin (your choice)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl,cream the shortening and sugar together until smooth. Add the dry gelatin mix, eggs, and vanilla; mix well. In a seperate bowl mix the baking powder, flour, and salt together. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix together well. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls. Press onto a greased cookie sheet with a small glass, the bottom dipped in sugar. (Rub a small amount of shortening on the bottom of the glass to get sugar to stick the first time. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned.

Note: You can add a couple of drops of food coloring to enhance the color of the gelatin, if desired.
