Christmas dessert recipe — gumdrop cookies

By: 3 December 2010 No Comment

Today I am going with another one of Grandma’s Christmas recipes, and my husband’s favorite this time of year.

Gum Drop Cookies. Goody, goody.

I have seen a lot of recipes for this cookie and have tried them, but none compare to Grandma’s. These are easy to make and great fun when you’ve got a kid or two involved in the cooking process. They’re colorful, as festive as you could ask for, indulgent and absolutely fantastic with a dollop of vanilla frosting spread on top of them. Spice gumdrops or the more traditional, fruit-flavored ones both work well with this recipe.

Gumdrop Cookies

6 eggs
3 cups brown sugar
3 Tablespoons COLD water
3 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup chopped nuts
1 ½ cups cut-up gumdrops

Beat eggs, add sugar and water beat. Add flour, salt and spices. Mix well. Add nuts and gumdrops, mix. Spread in greased pan 9 x 13. bake 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Cut into squares. Cool. Frost and decorate with gum drops.

More Christmas recipes here. Remember — check back every day from now through Christmas Eve for a new recipe.
