Funfetti Jello Cookies
We’ve always kept sugar-free gelatin in the pantry for a fast easy snack that is low in calories. A few years ago, our friend Emilee made these funfetti cookies for us and shared the recipe giving us a completely new spin on cookies! They are pretty simple to make, and they are fun to play with flavor combinations! For hers, she used a gelatin without red dye since her daughter has allergies. For ours, we use whatever flavor we have on hand, but our favorites are citrus flavors.
