Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat oven 350.
  2. degrees F.
  3. Chop your sugared gumdrops into small pieces, I use scissors, or a sugared or floured paring knife. A little tedious job, but once its done, the recipe is a breeze.
  4. Mix butter and sugar and cream well with wooden spoon.
  5. (If using hand mixer do not over beat the butter and sugar, this will make the butter ooozz out while baking and end up with a buttery greasy cookie.).
  6. Stir in the flour and the chopped gumdrops.( A tip is to use 1/4 cup of the flour tossed into the chopped gumdrops, so that they stay seperate after cutting.).
  7. Shape dough into balls. This doesnt want to hold together well, so just squeeze each ball tightly to form.
  8. Place onto cookie sheet.
  9. Press a greased glass into the granulated sugar, and then press down on each cookie to 1/2 inch thick.
  10. Cut the small drops into pieces and press a few into each cookie.
  11. Bake 10 minutes, or until edges are light golden.
  12. Remove to wire rack.
  13. Cool completely.
  14. You will see that these are crumbly to make balls, You might even think that they won't hold up.
  15. But do not add any more butter.
  16. That is the reason that the last drops are pressed into place before baking.

I will not lie. These , for me anyway, are NOT fun to make. But WOW are they addictive little buggers!!! :) They went together easy enough , I didn't even have trouble with them being crumbly. WHY I didn't enjoy making them, well, for me , chopping the gumdrops and cutting the others and putting the pieces into the cookie, tedious. Having said that , I will tell you these cookies will DEFINITELY be made again at my house. All I have to do is con someone else into doing the tedious part for me ;) I think kids would love the appearance of these and even grownups would love the taste!! :-) Thanks for a definite keeper of a cookie recipe!
