    bballtrish's Note:

    This recipe came from a magazine page in Good Housekeeping, and I remember making them in the early '80's with my mom, so this recipe is at least that old. I've made this with several different Jell-o flavors and they've all been good. If you have trouble handling the dough in the cookie press chill it a bit.

      Very good - Got this recipe from an old Wisconsin Gas Cookbook from the 50's - decided to give them a whirl and glad I did.

      I just made these for our annual Christmas cookie making that we do for gifts. I made the mistake of using 3/4 Cup of powdered sugar (I was reading another recipe oops), so I added 3/4 Cup of white sugar not knowing how it turn out as well as another 1/4 cup of flour. I also chilled the dough for about 10 minutes. They ended up turning out very well. I used the lime jello to make green christmas trees and they were delicious. I will try this with a cherry or something for the red. My kids loved them too! I will definitely be making these every year from now on!

      This recipe did what I needed-- gave me good, red cookies for Christmas trays. Done in 5-7 minutes (yes, I burnt the first pan even with all the warnings given in other reviews). I used Cherry jello and the flavor was stronger than I thought- but still good. Need to refrigerate the dough between putting batches in the oven- mine got too soft and the last pans had much bigger cookies (oozed out of the press).
