Patriotic Cake Mix Jello Cookies. A wonderful combination of a boxed cake mix and Jell-O. These are so simple and fun to decorate for the 4th of July!
I think I’ve been in love with cake mix cookies lately. You might be sick of them since we’ve been posting so many different types. I’m surprisingly not tired of them. Maybe because it’s so easy to make them and they look so pillowy-soft cute. So this little blue cookie is yet another take on the cake mix cookie. But this one is a hint different because it has a box of JELL-O thrown in. Yes. Jello Cookies. And I’m absolutely sure you’ll love them.
There are simple ingredients in these jello cookies. Butter, cream cheese, cake mix, Jell-O, and an egg. You don’t have to refrigerate the cookie dough as some of our other recipes require. They’re just mix, roll, and bake.
It’s just 11-13 minutes for your jello cookies to bake. Just enough time to whip up the simple powdered sugar vanilla frosting for the top of the jello cookies.
Do you know what cookies these remind me of? Those store bought Lofthouse sugar cookies. My brother LOVES those cookies. I was never a fan because they were way too sweet for me. I’m not stopping you from eating them, but if you’re wanting something a little more tart and packed with a whole lot of flavor,these are the ones you want to make. You see, they get their blue color from blue raspberry Jell-O. We’ve found that different jello can make a difference in how blue the color is, so feel free to add in a few drops of blue food coloring if it is not bright enough for you.
How do jello cookies tastes? Although they don’t necessarily taste like raspberry, they do have just a bit of tartness that goes so well with the sweet frosting.
I could keep talking about how easy and delicious these jello cookies are, but you get the idea. They’re fast to make and will be gone as quick as lightning. They are extremely delicious with a burst of tart flavor and cream cheese goodness!
I made these for the 4th and they were a hit. I was going to do up some for Christmas. Have you done them with the red or green jello? I wasn’t sure if one flavor worked better than the other. Thank you.
Okay, now this isn’t even fair. How am I supposed to wait a whole month for all this deliciousness!? These look so easy and so yummy. Love love love!
