There is so much fun to be had baking in the kitchen with your kids! My most fond memories are in the kitchen with my mom and grandma.  Teaching little ones baking and cooking skills will really enrich their overall education and what a perfect time to bond and just have fun in the kitchen.  On a day like this no one gets in trouble for messy hands! Make those hands messy and have a blast!

Jello Cookies ~ So pretty and so fun to make. Get the kids involved and you have a party!The Jello not only colors the cookie it also takes on the flavor of the Jello.  They have just a hint of tartness and are balanced perfectly with the sweetness.  Let the kids pick their favorite flavors and make a fun afternoon of of cookie baking.

Personally Lemon was my favorite, closely followed by Strawberry.   The bright colors just make these cookies FUN!Jello Cookies ~ So pretty and so fun to make. Get the kids involved and you have a party!I don’t think the sugar free Jello mix would work as well as it would have an artificial sweetener in it and I don’t think it would have the same flavor.  I also added a drop or two of food coloring to help boost the color, especially for the photo’s.  If you are not a fan of food coloring by all means don’t feel the need to use it.

The base dough is very similar to a sugar cookie only a little less sugar.  The Jello mix does have a sugar in it also adds to the overall sweetness.Jello Cookies ~ So pretty and so fun to make.

      I just made the Jello cookies and was very disappointed. They did not hold their shape and even after cooking them twice as long as recipe said they were still not cooked right. The flavor was very good, but cookie was greasy. After some investigation I discovered that the recipe is wrong. It should be 3 1/4 cups of flour not 2 3/4 cups. I will try them again .

  5. Aww such lovely cookies, they look like taken out of the rainbow! :)

    I would love to make these…so beautiful and they look scrumptious. My husband doesn’t like ‘soft’ cookies…for him Crunch is king…are these crisp or soft when finished?

    • They are softish. But you could make them a little flatter and cook for 2 more min and they would be much crisper. If you make them I would love to know how they turned out! Thanks so much for stopping by Cynthia!

  7. Oh my gosh, I love these! I have to make them with my boys!
