"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."

"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."

"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."

"I do not have a cookie press but I decided to try these cookies anyway. Maybe that was my mistake as I did not care for these cookies. Will take some to our pot luck and see if others enjoy them. Probably will not make again."

"My 10 year old daughter helped me make these today. WOW! Yummy flavor!!! Easy dough to work with. I am wondering if other jello flavors will work just as well? Can't wait to try that idea out. LOVE THESE COOKIES!!!"
