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.



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!) Heather



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
