READY IN: 32mins




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Remove 1 tablespoon of the gelatin powder and set aside to use for the icing later on.
  • Put the remainder of the gelatin powder in a large bowl with the butter and powdered sugar. Cream well.
  • Combine the flour with the salt and add to the butter mixture; mix well.
  • Shape the dough into 3/4 inch to 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies, until the edges just begin to slightly brown.
  • Remove from the oven, let sit on the cookie sheet for a minute or so, then remove cookies to a rack to cool completely.
  • Prepare the icing by dissolving the reserved 1 tablespoon of gelatin powder in the 3 tablespoons of hot water in a bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes, then add the vanilla and stir in the 2 cups powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Dip the tops of the cookies into the icing, then either dip in the topping of your choice or place back on the rack and sprinkle with your topping and let dry completely.
