Lemon Drop Cookie

Lemon Drop Cookie
If you like lemon drop candy, you would like this cookie. I was inspired to make these when I found a Lemonhead Cookie recipe. The original recipe uses a lemon cake mix. I decided to go with the Jello cookie route I've done before. I have to admit, this is going to be a big hit for me, I LOVE lemon drops. I would definitely make this again.

So here is the recipe:

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 - 3 oz package of Lemon Jello
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
 2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup crushed lemon drop candy (like Lemonheads)

Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients. Form 1 inch ball, roll ball in sugar, place on  baking sheet and flatten using bottom of a glass. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes.
