    Oatmeal Gumdrop Cookies Oatmeal Gumdrop Cookies

    These colorful slice-and-bake oatmeal cookies will be a favorite when you bake just a few and serve them while still warm warm with a glass of milk.

    Prep: 50 min - Chill: 2 hrs - Bake: 10 min

    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened*
    2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
    1 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

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

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

    Heat oven to 350°F. Cut roll, using serrated knife, into 3/8-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

    *Substitute LAND O LAKES® Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil right from the refrigerator.

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

    TIP: 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: 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.

    TIP: This recipe can doubled to yield 2 rolls cookie dough.

    Makes 2 dozen cookies
