1 (3 ounce) package
fruit flavored Jell-O® mix
2 1/2 cups
I tried using grape flavored Jello, and I was not very happy with the taste. My kids, however, loved the grape flavor- as did kids from my church. (ages 3-12)
I also tried rolling the balls in another package of grape Jello, to add more flavor, but I thought that it made the outside of the cookies kindof sour. (Probably why the kids liked them...) Next time I may try lemon or cherry flavor, and roll the balls in plain sugar, and then flatten them. You will need to add extra food coloring, as the coloring in the jello really isn't enough to color the entire batch of dough.
I used my Pampered Chef small scooper to make identical sized cookies, and ended up with exactly 43 cookies. I also baked them on parchment for 7 minutes. Still soft inside, and only slightly browned on the bottoms.
Over all, this was a good sugar cookie and they were very simple to make.
Not very good. I used black cherry flavor and I didn't think they were very flavorful. The bottoms of my cookies burnt and I wonder if maybe the temp. was too high. There is just something missing with this recipe. I won't make them again.
I was in a baking mood last night and after making some delicious oatmeal cookies, I tried these. I had jello on hand and used the ingredient search, voila!!! An instant hit! I work at a leading woment's fashion retailer and brought these in for my staff, they LOVED them! The most asked question? "What's in these that makes them so good?" Well, a little bit of jello and a whole lot of love... Thank you for the awesome recipe! It's going to be getting shared quite a bit!
(I used raspberry gelatin powder and chopped up some milk chocolate squares and put them in the middle as a little chocolate fix for the girls!)
surprisingly good! I used raspberry and subbed butter for shortening. Also, i rolled them in sugar and flattened with a glass before baking for 7 mins each. will definitely make again
I grew up making Jello cookies for Christmas using lime jello and cherry, raspberry, or cranberry flavored Jello. I love them, my daughter also loves to make them. To make the color richer, we add a few drops of food coloring to the cookie dough.
This cookie was very good. I even made a sugar-free version using splenda. Use sugar-free jello and add 1/2 cup of splenda and reduce flour to two cups. Bake as normal. It doesn't make as many cookies, but they taste just as good. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
My husband loved these (gasp!!!). I wasnted more of a buttery taste to the so I made them with butter-flavored crisco. Kids loved them too. I think I may have over cooked them because they weren't moist enough... next time I make them, the cooking time will be shorter. Thanks for sharing!
I made these cookies with my 7 year old son and they were super easy and fun to make! We used cherry jello, it was a bit tart, so we melted chocolate frosting and dipped the tops of the cookies in it. They taste kind of like a chocolate covered cherry!
