JELL-O Pastel Cookies recipe

Pretty in pink, green, yellow and any other color you love. Jell-O Gelatin in the dough and sprinkled on top makes sugar cookies even more special.

I made these for Christmas cookie trays this year. I used cherry jell-o instead of strawberry, which gave a darker color. Some of them I flattened, as in the recipe, and some of them I cut into petal shapes and put candies in the centers. They looked really pretty - although you couldn't really see the sprinkles in the center - but they tasted rather bland. Even butter cookies are better. I felt like this was a waste of ingredients.

While the color was in keeping with the season, the taste or flavor got lost .Perhaps some flavoring in the cookie it self would improve the flavor.

Every year I give a variety of cookies on a tray as gifts for the holidays. I usually make at least 12 kinds of cookies with 3 or 4 of them being new recipes. This past holiday season I added the Jello pastel cookies. The raves were great. I did use lemon Jello and changed the flavoring from vanilla to lemon extract. Many thought they were a version of lemon squares. They will be on my trays from here on out. Thanks Kraft! Gail B

I loved these! I tried the lime version, and they were so good... definitely a favorite at Christmas! I dipped the glass into the Jell-O before flattening, then sprinkled with more Jell-O. I have some butter softening right now to make them again!

I made this for my daughters christmas party at school. People could not believe that they were made with jello. We liked them so much that I made more and then some more. I will make these again.

I made these for the 1st time & they were very good. I split the dough as I did not want to make 2 full batches, then added a lg box of strawberry to 1/2 & the same in the lime to the other 1/2. The lime was very sweet, but the Strawberry was very good. Next time I will only use a small box of lime. Instead of gelatin mix, I used red & green sugar sprinkles on the opposite color of the dough, then placed wax paper over the cookies & pressed with a drinking glass instead of dish. They formed perfectly. The colors did not look pastel, but a very bright red & green, perfect for Christmas! I will try other flavors in the future & will definitely file this in my cookie recipe box. A great & easy recipe to follow & very little mess & ingredients.

These are GREAT !! I made them for my son's Christmas party at school in red and green. They are cookies that kept soft for 2 days in an airtight storage container. They have take on the flavor of the gelatin and the cookie combine. Definitly recommend trying !!

Cookies had a weird texture and very bland- stick with traditional sugar cookies
