Notes

So pretty - could use pistachios and cherries for Christmas; could use chopped peaches and peach Jell-O in summer-so many different combinations! I just tried this for the first time today. Was at a personal care home and they were making sugar cookies and wanted to add something for breast awareness month. I saw cherry Jell-O in their cupboard, and remembered making pastel cookies many years ago. To make it easy, we just dipped the tops in the Jell-O. Everyone was so impressed - they never heard of that before. When home, I looked at my old recipe, but decided to change it. I used a basic cookie recipe and added the cherries, nuts and Jell-O and it turned out great. Can't wait to try other combinations. I added a few chocolate chips on some of the cookies after they were baked cause my grandchildren think all cookies should have chocolate chips! Never made up a recipe and submitted it to anything before, but thought this was really good and wanted to share it. Enjoy!
