Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Level: Easy to Bake

Yield: 5 Dozen Cookies

I am not really an oatmeal cookie fan but I love these cookies. Sometimes I use raisins instead of gumdrops.


Cream together...

1/2 c. butter

1/2 c. white sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar


1 large egg

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Beat well.

Stir in...

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 c. rolled oats (regular or quick)

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

Then add...

1 6-1/2 ounce package gumdrops (omit black gumdrops)

Drop cookies by spoonful onto a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
