Next up from my Grandma’s recipes…Gumdrop Cookies! When she marked “good” on the top right of the recipe card I have learned that they certainly will be!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar, granulated
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup coconut, shredded
- 1 cup gumdrops or fruit jellies, cut into pieces
Mix butter and sugars until well combined.
Add eggs one at a time.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to butter/sugar mixture.
Mix in oats and coconut.
Stir in gumdrops or fruit jellies.
Drop teaspoon of batter on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes.
Place a gumdrop or 1/4 fruit jelly on top of hot cookie immediately after coming out of the oven.
Yields 4-6 dozen cookies depending on amount of batter dropped onto cookie sheet.
