    From food and family magazine. A good cookie for the kids to make using those boxes of jello that never get made. Do not overbake!

      Okay, I remember this recipe. Actually I did a search here for this because I don't have the recipe any more. I loved these. So when the post stated it was from food and family I looked it up! This is the same, there are no mistakes in it. I actually loved these and thought they were great. Thank you so much for posting this; I want to make these again. Five stars from me!

      This did not turn out. Perhaps it was the flavor of the jello, berry fusion, I added a little milk to the dough because it wouldn't stay together. I also added an egg. I think the recipe was posted incorrectly. Thank you.

      I had the same problem. It was too dry. Wanted to make them into cut out cookies but could not roll them out w/out crumbling. Even making a ball was hard. Nice flavor however so I will try again with an extra egg or look to see what the other jello recipe's are calling for fluids.
