These are fun little cookies--would be good with kids bc they are easy but have some fun little steps--like the flattening, that would be a good project for the little ones. They are a soft, firm cookie,with a bit of a tang from the jello, and if you don't press them down they would probably stay puffed up--they really didn't spread at all. I skipped a step by dipping the bottom of my glass in the reserved jello and then getting the additional color that way. I used lime jello for the cookies themselves then mixed fruit for the reserved jello so I could get red and green cookies for Christmas. It worked out pretty well, although I should've paid attention to the one reviewer who used food coloring--while the mixed fruit deepened to red from baking, the green is rather pale--pastel, exactly like the name of the recipe. So next time I'd probably add a bit more food coloring to the dough. Also, probably bc I dipped the glass in the reserved jello, I still have a lot of mixed fruit jello left over. I think I'll make another batch with it and decorate with icing or colored sugar instead of more jello. Thanks for the recipe!
