"When my brother got married last May, my mother made sure to give his bride a copy of this recipe. Any flavor of gelatin may be used in this recipe. They're light, airy and if you use a citrus flavored gelatin they have a refreshing tang."

distilled white vinegar
3 1/2 tablespoons
fruit flavored Jell-O® mix
semisweet chocolate chips
I made a double batch of these tonight with a lemon gelatin, they are so good, I definetly think they will be a favorite to make many times at our house:) I did not have any white vinager but they still came out great.
Forget the vinegar! I only used half the vinegar called for in this recipe and they still tasted of it!
These are great. I had been buying meringue cookies at the grocery store for $5 a package--these are so much cheaper to make and taste a lot better!! I suggest making them before bed and leaving them to dry until morning (don't forget to turn off the oven!!), because mine were not dryed out after 20 minutes.
I've been looking for my Mom's recipe for these! She used to use cherry Jello and made half with maraschino cherry bits and half with mini chocolate chips. Same recipe right down to using brown paper bags instead of parchment! Thanks for posting this!
I left out the vinegar based on the other reviews, but they turned out way too sweet for our liking. My 5 year old wouldn't even eat them. My 2 year old devoured them, though, so I guess it's all about personal taste. Left them overnight in the oven, too. The fruity (1 batch raspberry, 1 cherry) taste was quite a bit too strong, so I think less gelatin would fix both problems.
Omitted the vinegar...but...otherwise prepared the recipe as directed. Used strawberry jello...They were so pretty and so good.
Great stuff! I used cherry gelatin and omitted the vinegar...they were great on the Valentine's Day treat table.
I made 2 batches of these cookies. One lime and one raspberry. The lime ones turned out good with a nice light flavor but the raspberry ones were heavy. Both were salty and neither took 20 minutes to dry out. It was more like 6 or 7 hours.
