Jigglers for your Gobblers!

My kids love Thanksgiving. They don't talk about the amazing sausage stuffing, the sweet potato casserole to die for, or the black bottom pecan pie I can't wait to get my hands on. They love it because they know Gumma is going to make Jigglers! My mom "Gumma", pulls out the cutest cookie cutters and lets the girls get to work. They're not gourmet - they're "Gumma-made" and my kids love her for making them at the holidays.

Start out with some seasonal cookie cutters. In a month the tree cookie cutters and the lime jello will be making their appearance. Tell your grandkids they'll be cutting tree's when they get to your house for Christmas - They'll love it.

Gumma got my girls adorable Thanksgiving aprons and it was time to get to work.

Jello Jigglers
1 (3 oz) Box any flavor jello
1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon boiling water

Dissolve jello in boiling water for at least 3 minutes.
Pour into flat bottom dish and chill for 3 hours.
Dip bottom of pan in hot water to loosen jello.
