Valentine’s Day Buttercream

What makes this buttercream frosting extra special is making it with Strawberry Jello.  HELLO,  Are you listing?  This frosting tastes amazing.  

BEST TIP:  Coloring the buttercream with Jello:

To color 3/4 cup frosting, use two tablespoons Jello powder – for green use Lime Jello, red use strawberry jello, and yellow use lemon Jello.
Add two teaspoons hot water to the two tablespoons Jello.  Stir in half the 3/4 cup of frosting and mix well.  Insert the other half of icing and blend well.  

Baking Tip:

PUT THE FIRST BATCH OF COOKIES IN THE OVEN AS SOON AS YOU MIX THEM UP OR reFrigerate the dough.  The dough has a lot of butter in it.  It will spread out while baking if not cold.
