Let's Make It
Mix 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Gradually add water, stirring with whisk until blended. Bring to boil on medium heat; cook 5 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add dry gelatin mixes and lemon juice; stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Pour into 8-inch square dish sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Unmold onto parchment paper just before serving. Use small cookie cutter to cut gelatin into desired shapes, such as stars. Coat with remaining sugar.
Instead of cutting the gelatin mixture into shapes, use a sharp knife to cut it into squares instead.
Prepare using orange or lime juice and your favorite flavor of JELL-O Gelatin.
