  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of clean glass; sprinkle lightly with reserved jelly powder.
  • Bake 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min.; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.

Special Extra

Use Jell-O Lime Jelly Powder to prepare second batch of cookies. Arrange on platter with strawberry-flavoured cookies to create a festive holiday platter.

Cooking Know-How

To easily press cookies, dip bottom of glass in granulated sugar before using to flatten each ball of dough. In addition to the sugar helping prevent the dough from sticking to the glass, it adds a glittery look to the baked cookies.

    Strange cookies. Dough was very crumbly. My two year old liked them though.

    What a dream recipe to make. Easy, fast, simple ingredients and cookies are super tasty. Made the red and now I am making the green. 400 degrees is a bit high. I had to turn on the fan because my oven was smoking but the cookies turn out perfect.

    These cookies were great! I used orange jello and I always add extra vanilla into my cookies. They had just enough orange flavor in them. I would definitely make these again.
