Jell-O Cookies

Jell-O Cookies

In search for recipes that come from way back then and trying to add to my recipe collection dishes and treats that are still around, I found this Jell-O Cookie recipe that I though could be fun to bake. It is a mega easy recipe and honest it takes 20 minutes from the beginning to the end. Can't get better than that.

I know that many people would snob this kind of recipe and I gave it a lot of thought before posting but, after days of considerations I decided that I couldn't care less if other people looks down this kind of every day cookies. Many times easy is the way to go and the cookies are actually quite nice. If you want more elaborate recipes just look in other recipes in the blog...they are there.

So while it hails outside I eat cookies and blog. This is the life...
