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

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half on lightly floured surface; shape each half into an 8x1 1/2-inch log.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  5. STEP 5

    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.

Tip #1

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.
