A fun slice-and-bake cookie. Older kids can help cut the gumdrops; younger ones can help roll the cookie dough in decorator sugar.
When you see this badge, you know it will be good! These are the recipes that have passed our test.
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup gumdrops, cut into small pieces
4 tablespoons decorator sugars
Combine butter and powdered sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in gumdrops.
Divide dough in half on lightly floured surface; shape each half into an 8x1 1/2-inch log.
Place 2 tablespoons decorator sugar on large piece of plastic food wrap. Roll 1 log in decorator sugar to coat. Wrap tightly in plastic food wrap. Repeat with remaining log and decorator sugar. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Carefully cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp, serrated knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.
If gumdrops stick to knife when cutting, hold knife blade under hot tap water to warm blade; dry blade and continue cutting. Blade can also be lightly sprayed with no-stick cooking spray as often as needed.

These are very yummy. I made two batches - one with gum drops and one with fruit chews. I also used parchment paper for second batch....worked much better than without.
These cookies were a big hit with my sixth grade students!!
