It is recipe day today and once again I am teaming up with Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design with this weeks yummo recipe. What are the kids two favourite things – yes jelly and cookies – combined! Who would have thought!
These cookies are super quick and fun to do with the kids. This recipe is very forgiving and can handle being overworked by small hands. The cookies do spread whilst baking so allow plenty of room on the baking sheet.
Jelly Crystal Cookies
200 g butter
180 g gluten free plain flour
2 teaspoons gf baking powder
4 x packets of 85 g jelly crystals
Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.
Cream the butter, and sugar together in a mixer.
Add eggs and beat well.
Add the sifted flour and baking powder and mix until well combined.
Divide mixture evenly into four balls. Add a packet of jelly crystals to each ball and mix thoroughly. Add food colouring to intensify colour if desired.
Place in teaspoonful sizes on a oven tray. They do spread so allow room between cookies. Flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on baking tray.
Notes: regular or gf plain flour can be used
For dairy free, replace butter with dairy free spread of your choice.
