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.
