Springtime Jello Cookies!

Wow...where have I been?!  Honestly...no where too exciting :)  Just trying to keep up with the day to day of my life.  I went a few days without checking in, and today I was SHOCKED to realize how many people are following this little blog of mine!  Thank you all so much for taking the time to check in here...I certainly hope you find something you like!! :) 

Today I wanted to share something VERY exciting for you.  I actually attempted to make a recipe that I pinned on Pinterest!!  Aren't you proud of me?! ;)

I give you...Springtime Jello Cookies!!

I found these delicious (and adorable) cookies over at Just Helen.  She has SO many amazing recipes...make sure you check it out!

I have to tell you...this was probably my favorite cookie recipe I have ever made!  It was SO easy, smelled amazing, and the dough was perfect to work with.  These were quick and easy, turned out yummy, and added a tangy, fruity taste to a traditional sugar cookie.

On Just Helen, she does 4 different flavors.  Because of time I only did Lime and Raspberrry, but I loved both of them.  My taste-testers were split...Britton loved the raspberry but Kendall and Skylar preferred the lime :)

Make sure you check out the recipe HERE if you want to attempt these yummy little goodies...don't they just look happy?!

Thank you so much for coming by Blue Skies Ahead!  I have some really fun things in the works for next week and possibly even a craft or two :)  Have a wonderful day!!

My mom always used to make watermelon jello cookies on the 4th of July. You make them like those sugar cookies in a tube that you cut. Uhh you roll a long watermelon flavored tube for the middle and a thin lime around the whole outside. Then you slice off a circle and cut it in half so it looks like a watermelon slice. Bake normally then while cooling have some chocolate chips chopped up to place on to look like seeds, make sense? I've never seen anyone else make them. Maybe i'll make them take a picture and send it to you... haha so you know what I am talking about. Sounds like fun!
