Rainbow Sherbet Cookies Yum!

Hey guys!!  I have some of the cutest, tastiest cookies to share with you today!! My little sister is turning 13 (where does the time go?!?!) and she wants a tie dye party so of course being the obsessive party planner I am every thing has to be tie dye, cake, decor, snacks, everything!!  I have seen those “unicorn poop” cookies and have been wanting to try them and I figured hey they look a little tie dye.  However, I wanted to make these super tasty and my little sister lurves rainbow sherbet so now I just needed to figure out how to get sherbet flavor into cookies…. Enter Jello (is there anything this stuff can’t fix?) I got lemon jello, lime jello, orange jello and raspberry.  Then you make the 4 doughs (yes this makes a lot of cookies but they freeze well).

Sherbet Cookie Dough

Roll each color into 4 logs or “snakes”. Put 4 different colored dough snakes together and twist and roll out into one log. You will end up with about 4 logs. Sherbet Cookie Dough Roll

Pinch off a piece, roll it into a smaller snake and roll it into a spiral. Sherbet Cookie Swirls

Once they are baked and cool you enjoy them or you can freeze them if you have extra. Rainbow Sherbet Cookies Pile

This dough is very forgiving and doesn’t need any chill time (chill time for cookies is torture round here!)  While it is an easy dough to work with it does like to crack, DON”T FREAK OUT, just squish the crack together and go along your way. Now if you don’t want to bother with the spirals, just pinch off a piece of the log, roll it into a ball and flatten it, still look fabulous!! Tie Dye Rainbow Sherbet Cookies

So obviously they come out looking awesome, but how’s the taste? AMAZING!  They taste just like rainbow sherbet, JUST LIKE IT.  Not an “Oh that kinda tastes like sherbet” it is a “Holy Cow, it tastes just like a scoop of rainbow sherbet!”  I seriously surprised myself!  I knew they would taste good and yummy but even I was shocked at how much they taste just like sherbet.  Make these just so you can experience the awesomeness of cookies that taste like sherbet!  The four flavors mix perfectly to give these cookies a perfect rainbow taste!

We love these cookies and will making them over and over again.  You can use any flavor Jello you need to make whatever flavor or color combo you need.  These are our new favorite cookies and we will be making them over and over again!

    Very pretty – and these would be perfect for a tie-die party! I am curious – did you bake some in the cones, or just set them on top for the photo shoot? Beautiful pictures, by the way!

        Do you use SF or jello with sugar?

          I used jello with sugar, I’m sure you could use sugar free if you wanted.
