Gumdrop Cookies

My lil' bro and I used to make these when we were little, and I've been thinking about busting out the recipe again for old times' sake... They are amazing and the oatmeal helps to balance out the sweetness. We always used baking gums, because they are small and don't need to be chopped, and are not covered in additional sugar...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees...

1 c. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar
Cream butter and sugars.

Mix together:
2 tsp. cold water
1 tsp. soda
Add to creamed mixture.

Sift together:
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Add to mixture.

Add:
2 c. oatmeal
1 c. colored gumdrops, finely cut {use baking gums}

Optional:
1 c. coconut

Spoon onto greased cookie sheets and flatten with a fork. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

liam was salivating as he read this. I think it could rival the super nibs to make him give up his no sugar rule.
