The lemon juice really brightens the fruity flavours of the Jell-O and helps tone down the sweetness. You can add food colouring to the  Jell-O cookie dough if you want super vibrant  colours but the Jell-O is fun looking enough.

I also love the added brightness the chunky coloured sugar adds – it really makes these cookies so pretty!

  1. omg these look so awesome!! My 7 year old would go nuts over these just because of the colours! Thanks gorgeous, we’ll have to whip some up this weekend while we get hammered with yet another blast white precipitation lol.

  2. Oh i will! She just woke up and I already showed them to her… but apparently she doesn’t want “me” to make them with her.. she wants Daddy to lol.

  3. We whipped these up Sunday afternoon, their all gone. I totally enjoy them with my coffee. Since I’ve decided to keep the girls home today due to snowing and blowing and cold temps, we’re gonna make some more today! Thanks again gorgeous, Kira is adding ‘orange’ to her colours today lol

      1. Lime was my fav too, orange is pretty tasty. She’s taking one of each colour to school to show her friends lol. She even facetimed with my 20 year old in college to show her her ‘rainbow’ cookies lol. Thanks so much for the idea girl it’s a huge hit here!

  4. These would be great to add some colour to holiday cookie trays! I will have to make up a batch and see how we like them, thanks for the recipe!
