Can you flavor sugar cookies?
For sure. Sugar cookies are so simple and easy to alter the flavor! This is where the jello mix comes into play. Since you're adding in a box of jello, you know that the cookies are going to have a ton of delicious flavor! And let's not forget how moist the jello mix will make them!
What happens if you add in too much gelatin?
The flavor will be there but you'll notice a difference in the texture. If you add more than the recommended amount, the cookies will become a bit firmer and not as "melt-in-your-mouth."
What does gelatin do in baking?
It's basically used as a thickener in a lot of cooking and this makes it an easy way to thicken up certain liquids. It can also add flavor if you get gelatin that is flavored, too.

How to make Raspberry Jello Mix Cookies
To make the cookies:

How do you know when sugar cookies are done baking in the oven?
Sugar cookies can be a bit tricky to find out when they're done baking. The easiest way to find out if they're done and ready to be pulled from the oven is to pay close attention to the edges of the cookie. You'll start to notice that they're browning and that is your clue to pull them from the oven. Over-baking can cause them to get a bit harder.
How do you keep sugar cookies from spreading in the oven?
This can be such a pain! Tell me I'm not the only one that has made 10 cookies only to open the oven door and have them all one big giant cookie after baking.
The good news? They're a fix for that. I've found that when you put the cookies on parchment paper to bake, it helps to hold their shape! There's just something magical about it that keeps your cookies safe and separate from one another.
How do you store cookies to keep them soft?
No one likes hard, cookies - no one! So the easiest way to keep them soft and delicious is to store them properly from the start. You're going to want to keep them in an airtight container once they cool down completely.
Don't add them to the container until they are cooled down all the way or they will trap moisture and become quite the mess.
You can store these on the counter or in the fridge - totally up to you.
What other flavors of jello mix would pair perfectly with this recipe?
This is where you can really have fun. Raspberry jello mix cookies are great but branch out and see what other types you like. You can try flavors like:
- blue raspberry
Or you can even make a rainbow of cookies for a fun birthday surprise dessert as well! You can really have fun with this simple cookie recipe and give your taste buds a treat!
I've even thought about having a blind taste test where I try out different flavors of jello and then see if people can guess the flavors just by trying a bite! I can only imagine how much my children would love playing this game! See how much fun you can have with these cookies? There are so many ways to alter the flavor and the taste in a short amount of time.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. The flavors are spectacular, and let's be honest, these are some pretty adorable looking cookies!
