These cookies are easy to make and great tasting. I made cherry and lime last week for my daycare party and the kids gobbled them up. Thanks so much MG for an easy and good tasting recipe.

These were easy to make and looked pretty. My children liked them O.K. but didn't come back for more. My husband and I didn't really care for them very much. Unfortunately we tend to be chocolate people so the fruity taste just didn't work for us!

Excellent cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing this. I used lime jello and just wish I had a large enough cookie-eating crowd coming for Christmas and I would make a batch with cherry jello. I'm truly impressed. However, I did get more than 30 cookies and they were a pretty good size.

I used orange, but with all the comments about bland flavor, I went to the opposite extreme by using lemon extract + orange zest + about 2T of orange marmalade. Way too zingy; that was probably the lemon extract. The kids took one bite and that was it. BUT my hubby loved these, esp the few that I stuck 3 choc chips on top. So next time I'll try cherry jello w/almond extract, roll in gran sugar again, and probably include a few choc (or vanilla) chips for DH. Thanks for a nice, easy, different recipe.

These were easy to make, and looked good, but NOT ONE my children wanted to finish the cookie after the first bite! Maybe adding sugar to the top or rolling them in powdered sugar before baking would help the bland taste?

My children liked the colour (I used lime Jello for St. Patrick's Day). There was something about the flavour I didn't care for. I think maybe it had too much salt.

Well I was disapointed after all the rave reviews of these cookies. They had very little flavour. I used a cranberry and literally there is NO taste besides just a butter and flour dough. Bleh. Niether of my kids, age 3 and 4, like them either, although they enjoyed making them. Sorry folks.

These were fun to make with my 3yro, however I was not impressed with the finished result. The cookie tast was kinda blah, with nothing really to recommend it. My DH, daughter and myself gave it thumbs down, my 3yo said they were good, but didn't come back for more. Sorry to rain on the parade.
