This is one to try, especially if you have children. My son loves them because they are red. This is another one of my Grandmother's famous cookies. You could use other flavors of jello, but I don't know how they would turn out, some just aren't a strong enough flavor. Cherry is the best, orange is good and I think lime would be fine. Peach isn't so good.
