    Mysterygirl's Note:

    My daughter loves making these cookies because she can make different flavors and colors. At Christmas we make raspberry & lime which turn out red & green.

      I really didn't know what to expect since no one really described the taste or texture of the cookies. They are like little cakey sugar drop cookies that taste fruity. I used berry jello and I rolled the walnut-size balls in powdered sugar before baking. I'm not sure why but I had to bake them for more like 15-17 minutes, not 6 - 8 like the recipe says. This would be even better if you could figure out somehow to make them a little more tart. Like lemon jello with lemon peel maybe? I'll try that next time. A yummy, soft, sweet cookie. Oh - and as everyone else mentioned, the color is nice and vibrant, too.

      Great cookies! I made two batches.....one in the cookie press, which worked beautifully with this dough (don't chill dough). I used cherry Jell-o. The second batch, I omitted the Jell-o and substituted 1/2 cup sugar, added 1 tsp. of vanilla, and pressed balls to about 1/4 inch thickness with a sugared flat-bottomed glass. It made great sugar cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

      I have been making these cookies (we called them Pastilles) for over 10 years but lost the recipe last Christmas. Now I can make them again--thanks! (In fact I have some baking now!) My recipe said to roll them in granulated sugar, then put them on the baking sheet and flatten them with the bottom of a glass. (That works well!)
