Jello Cookies


Today I made cookies for my honeys, Mr. Pickypants and Taylor. Surfing the Internet I found these luscious looking cookies. I found them at Iheartnaptime. They we all bright and cheerful, just what I needed after a long hectic week and all the snow we got today.

I made three different flavors, grape, strawberry and lime. I used sugar free jello for mine and did not roll my balls in the left over jello as I didn't have any.  I did add some food coloring to mine which gave them a vibrant color. They are basically a sugar cookie with jello mixed in. They did taste like grape, strawberry and lime jello.

They were a little bit of work, mixing the different flavored jellos into the cookie dough, but nothing I couldn't handle. I LOVE the end results. I LOVE the colors. Who has ever eaten a purple cookie before that tasted like grape jello.....Well, me. I ate two. And a green cookie that tastes like lime. YUMMY
