The refreshing citrus flavor in these pressed cookies comes from lime gelatin. They're easy, festive and delightfully different— always a big hit at potlucks and luncheons.

EASY and good

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2011

I make these every year... and everyone loves them. The little bit of lime is a hit. Sad these get such bad ratings - I've made them over and over and have never had problems with the dough.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2010

I did like the flavor of these cookies, but had a hard time mixing them. I usually have no trouble with my cookie press, but this dough was more than it could handle. I finally had to make them into balls and press with a cookie stamp.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 5, 2010

Dough did not come together properly, too stiff to go through cookie press, and when I patted it out in a pan and baked it, it had no flavor except butter.

These are great -- I made them with raspberry gelatin in the shape of hearts for Valentines - went over great.
