  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, mix cookie mix, flour, softened butter and egg with spoon until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/2 cup of the quartered gumdrops.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 40 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased large cookie sheets; flatten each ball to 1 1/2-inch circle. On each dough round, sprinkle sugar and place 3 quartered gumdrops.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are set and light brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. Store covered in airtight container.
  • For best results, make sure gumdrop pieces remain separate when stirring into dough so there are some in every cookie!

Expert Tips

  • Gumdrops can be fruity or spice-flavored. Fruit gumdrops are larger than the spice-flavored gumdrops. For this recipe, we tested with spice-flavored gumdrops.
  • Coarse sparkling sugar adds extra sparkle to holiday cookies and can be found in the cake decorating section at most grocery stores.
  • Make cutting spice drops easier by spraying kitchen scissors with cooking spray to help prevent spice drops from sticking.
