Jello Cookies…Lemon, Lime, Orange and Raspberry. Rolled in sugar and then sprinkled with more chunky, colored sugar before baking. These are the sugariest of sugar cookies. Tangy, sweet, soft and yummy. Beautiful, colorful and delightfully different from my usual favorites.

I got the recipe from my Nana at least 30 years ago a while back (wink). I thought why not give my kids a treat that I remember from when I was young (hey, how did we get on this “age” kick anyway?). So, I started making theses sweets and it brought back such wonderful memories. Sometimes it’s good to revisit those old favorites.
