02 hrs 25 min


1/2 cup sugar

1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped gumdrops

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar, butter and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, oats, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir in gumdrops. Shape dough into 9x1 1/2-inch roll. Wrap in waxed paper; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut roll, using serrated knife, into 3/8-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

Tip #1

- Carefully cut gumdrops into small pieces using a kitchen scissors. Dip the blades of scissors into water to prevent sticking.

Tip #2

- Vary this recipe easily by using a variety of stir-in ingredients such as mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips, raisins and sweetened dried cranberries.

Tip #3

- Roll of cookie dough may be refrigerated for up to 2 to 3 days. The roll may also be frozen. Place wrapped roll of cookie dough into plastic resealable freezer bag; freeze up to 3 months.
