Fruity Spritz Cookies made with Jell-O

READY IN: 1hr 13mins
Recipe by bballtrish

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.
