Christmas Sugar Cookie Jello Shots Recipe

SWEET, VANILLA-Y, & SPRINKLES!

The number one sweet I think of during the Christmas season is sugar cookies. I love baking them, but mostly I love eating them. The soft cookie, the cute shapes, the delicious festive frosting, and all of the sprinkles! While these sugar cookie Jello shots won't replace the real deal, they are certainly great to have in addition to the sugar cookie. These shots are made with sugar, butter and vanilla flavorings, vanilla vodka, and topped with frosting and sprinkles. They are cute and are so tasty!


SUGAR COOKIE JELL-O SHOT INGREDIENTS

Unflavored Gelatin Powder: I use unflavored gelatin powder so I can be in control of all the flavors.

Sugar: We are going to be dissolving the sugar in water to make a super sweet liquid to mix into the gelatin. What's a sugar cookie without sugar, right?

Vanilla Extract: Adds that great vanilla taste just like my favorite sugar cookies have.

Butter Extract: All good cookies have butter so adding a bit of butter extract makes these shots taste more like a real cookie.

Vanilla Vodka: This vodka really helps make these jello shots taste like dessert.

Frosting + Sprinkles: Homemade or store-bought frosting will both work for these shots. And the sprinkles are are must!

HOW TO MAKE SUGAR COOKIE JELL-O SHOTS

• In a medium bowl, pour in 1/2 cup of room temperature or cool water, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin on top, and let sit.

• Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar. Stir over medium heat just until the mixture begins to simmer.

Whisk hot sugar water mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk until all of the gelatin has dissolved and there are no clumps.

• Whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon butter extract, and 1 cup vanilla vodka. Pour into 2-ounce plastic shot cups, and chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set.

• If desired, right before serving top with frosting and sprinkles. Cheers!
