|¾ cup||Butter or Margarine|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla Extract|
|1 teaspoon||Almond Extract|
|1 pack||Cherry Jello (3 oz)|
|1 teaspoon||Baking Powder|
Cream Butter, Sugar, Eggs, add Extracts and Jello Powder. Sift in flour and baking powder.
Roll pieces of dough into ¾" balls. Place 3" apart on ungreased baking sheet, flatten with bottom of large glass. Sprinkle green sugar around the edge, throw some Chocolate Streusels in the middle.
Nonpareils can be used, but that's messy! Bake in 400oF (preheated oven) for 6-8 min. Keep in tightly covered container. Makes about 4 doz.
GREEN ONES: same as above, but use LIME JELLO (instead of Cherry) LEMON EXTRACT (instead of Almond) DO use green sugar for the edges on this one, too, I've tried red and it fades and doesn't look good. The green gets real intense, just right for X-mas.
