KoolAid Cookies

koolaid cookies

I found out a friend was ill over the weekend and while she wouldn’t let me bring her dinner, I had to send something over!

I decided to make her these sweet and cheerful KoolAid cookies.  My boys loved helping me with the colors and I’m hoping they bring a little smile to my friend when she receives them!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 30
  • 1⅔ cups Sugar
  • 1¼ cups butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups of flour
  • Kool-Aid in your choice of flavor(s)
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a mixer cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add eggs and mix well.
  4. Add salt and baking soda.
  5. Add flour to butter mixture ½ cup at a time and mix well.
  6. If you would like more than flavor of cookies divide your dough into separate bowls now.
  7. I divided my dough into four equal portions and used one half packet of Kool-Aid per portion. If you are making only two colors you will use one packet of Kool-Aid per half, if you only want one color use two packets for the entire recipe.
  8. Mix Kool-Aid into dough until well blended and color is even.
  9. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes.
  10. Let cool one minute before removing from pan.

    I love these! My mom had a recipe she passed along to me, it has an icing that goes on them too! I haven’t made them for so long, I think I need to make some now!

      I totally forgot to try an icing or sugar topping with these, I’d love to hear your recipe if you ever have time! Thanks for stopping by!

    What a fun way to make colorful fruity cookies! I’ve tried a similar Jello cookie recipe, but was a little disappointed in the results. I’d love to try these pretty cookies. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this recipe and it was a hit. My husband and his coworkers just loved them. I used tropical punch but next I shall try cherry limeade.
