I used Cherry Jell-O and sprinkled with multi-colored Betty Crocker Party Sugar instead. I got lots of requests for the recipe at work. They weren't too sweet, a little salty (which I like)and the cherry flavor jell-o added a familar taste to the cookies, but people could not guess what it was. Definately will make again!

Some of the coolest Christmas cookies ever! I usually make one batch of strawberry or raspberry and one of lime, so you have red and green! Everyone loves them.

This is my recipe, and I want to mention a few things I forgot when I submitted it. DON"T use sugar free gelatin! It will totally change the taste of the cookies, the same for using most sugar substitutes for the sugar in the recipe. Keep different flavors of cookies in different storage bags until ready to put them on a plate or whatever to serve, the flavors will mingle and make some interesting tasting cookies. Put them in an airtight container as soon as cool, or they will become quite crisp (unless you like crisp cookies!)
