St. Patrick's Day Lime Jello Cookies with Key Lime Buttercream Icing

This St. Patrick's recipe is perfect!
Starts with an easy to make Lime Jello cookie recipe, but the best part is the icing because it is key lime flavored!!!

Jello cookies are so easy to make and so interchangeable with flavors and colors.  So here's how to make Lime Jello cookies...perfect for St. Patrick's Day!

3/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup sugar
3oz package of lime flavored Jello gelatin
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and the sugar.  Next add the lime Jello gelatin, eggs and vanilla.  Blend in the flour, baking powder and salt. 

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a greased baking sheet.  Flatten down with the bottom of a glass.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.  Remove to wire rack to cool.

Now for the key lime flavored buttercream icing...

1/2 cup butter
3 Tbsp key lime juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 16oz package powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk
green food coloring

Cream the butter, key lime juice and vanilla together.  Mix in the powdered sugar.  Then add the milk.  Add 1 Tbsp at a time until the icing is the consistency you like.  Again, add 1-2 dropfuls of green food coloring until you reach the desired color.

As I was frosting, I added some cute green and yellow sprinkles as well as some edible white gems.  The cookie is flavorful with a yummy key lime flavored icing.  A flavor that is lighter...you know like the way you should be dressing by now...in lighter clothes???!!!  Wishful thinking on my part.  One 50 degree day is just not enough...we are back to coats.  So these cookies will lift your spirits with a spring flavor! 

Anyhow, these cookies are delicious and the perfect St. Patrick's Day color!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!


  1. Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD had told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. On Aug 23, 2020, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. I reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
