These cookies take a while since the dough has to be refrigerated twice, but they look and taste great! The colors look great on a cookie plate, especially when dusted with colored sugar of a contrasting color. I had an easier time slicing them and keeping their shape if they were frozen, then slightly thawed after rolling.

Fantastic! I was in a hurry, so I just mixed everything together (including the jell-o mix), rolled them into balls, and popped them into the oven. They turned out fantastic! Soft and just the right texture. These are definately a keeper! **Added later: These cookies did not stay soft long. I loved them at first; but, a day later (they were in a closed tupperware), they were dry and much less tasty. I reccomend cooking them right before eating, and freeze leftovers.** I added 1 tsp vanilla and an additional 1/3 cup sugar for taste.

Not only were these cookies delicious, and gorgeous to look at, but they were simple and fun to make. I followed this exact recipe, but took the advice and cut them with dental floss. Warning: Do NOT allow the cookies to cool after removing from the oven. Remove them from the pan immediately, because, despite greasing the pan, the jell-o sticks to the pan as it starts to cool.
