These were definately fun and easy. Had to cook them for 10-12 minutes instead of the 6-8 like the recipie said. I thought they were a little tart and I would have to agree that they would work really well with lemon jello. I also wanted to experiment more so I added some chocolate chips and coconut to half of the batter and they turned out really well. The sweetness in the chocolate counter acts the tartness of the raspberry flavor. Definately a keeper :)

These were really fun and easy to make with my two year old. She was so excited to see the dough turn blue, and then couldn't wait to eat them. We used Berry Blue jello. When I added the vanilla it did turn the colour to be more of a pale aqua, but she still like them. If I had white vanilla I would use that instead. I didn't really care for the taste, but I am pregnant and suffering from morning sickness! They did look really cute, I am sure we will make them again and again with all the other jello flavours. I think they will be a good holiday cookie; Easter, Valentine's, St. Paddy's, etc.

Easy colorful cookies. I made them for a school bake sale and my children loved them. We'll see if they sell out tomorrow!

I used Lemon Jello-it was my first try. I thought the lemon was a little tart, but they were very soft, which is what my family loves. My kids devoured these. I think the sprinkles is what attracted them so much. I thought they were very yummy and super easy!

Very tasty. The first batch was a little lacking, so I added 1/2 tsp. lemon extract. That was just the extra zing it needed. There is no need to oil & flour the cookie sheet if you use a good, non-stick sheet. Instead of using flour on the fork, I used colored sugar sprinkles.

Love these! I made lime and cherry flavors today. They have a cake-like texture, which is a nice addition to my cookie trays this year. I did not flatten them, and they stayed nicely rounded. Will be adding this recipe to the yearly baking repertoire. Thanks for posting!

I made these for Christmas and they were a hit. Everyone loved the colours! They are not the most flavourful cookies, and are slightly tart. To mask this I halved marchino cherries and pressed them into the center of the cookies. It turned out great, and made the cookies even more pleasing to the eye! Also, as for preperation, I found the flour on the baking sheet to be unnecissary, as a good coat of pam did the job wonderfully, and was less work. :) When balling the cookies, instead of using a fork in flour, I patted the cookies down with my finger. This worked very well, and the cookies looked a little better without the flour remains from the fork. Overall a GREAT recipe; very unique! I will definetly make this one again at the hollidays. Thanks for sharing!

These were great! What a wonderful idea! I made 3 batches over the weekend to give as little gifts and for the kids to have for snacks. They just loved them. I am definitley going to make them again. I think it was a little hot in the kitchen so I had to put them in the fridge for about 10 minutes before I could roll them.
