The dough was very difficult to work with. I tried putting in freezer for a while. Also needs some other flavoring. Very bland. I tried lime jell-o for st. patrick's day. Maybe that was the problem. Read More

It was a great idea but the gelatin did not go well with the cookie. Also putting the egg whites on top with the sprinkles was not good tasting. Read More

Skip the egg white but do sprinkle with sugar before baking or frost after cookies have cooled. Strawberry gelatin makes a delicious cookie that tastes much like strawberry cake! I'm in love.:) Read More
