It started, as most things do lately in my life, on Pinterest.
I loves me some Pinterest.
I saw a recipe for Jello cookies and thought to myself - this would be really cool to make with the kids.
And, being that we needed a dessert to bring to our neighborhood Memorial Day party, I decided to lay in a supply of Jello and let my kids create cookies.
By the time it was over, three people had been sent to their rooms for ugly attitudes, we had powdered Jello mix all over the floor, the blue cookies in the first batch had burned, and I needed a *serious* drink.
Details below, for the fearless.
I took on the responsibility of creating the cookie dough. It was easy, as most sugar cookie doughs are, and didn't require chilling - which most sugar cookie doughs do, so there was a bonus right there immediately.
And, really, anything that calls for Jello is, in my book, already a winner.
I decided to separate the dough into five separate- yet equal, that part is so important! - baggies, dropped in 2 T of powdered Jello mix and a couple of drops of food coloring, and set the kids to kneading.
Bake at 350 - the recipe said 8-10 minutes, but the first batch burned at 9. So, maybe 6-8, and watch them carefully
