I just love Gumdrop Cookies*. (and I admit that I am terrible at making food look delicious, but I assure you that these cookies are just that.)
Aren't you completely stunned that I was able to distinguish between the red and the green ones? No? You must not know me well enough...
The real Christmas gift I'm talking about is the fact that the wonderful Todd Gocken, of Expedition designing fame, has designed another sweater which I edited and then he sent me some yarn to knit one up for myself!
Briggs & Little Heritage in Khaki - I thought it was fitting as the sweater is called "Brigade" and is a military style sweater. The pattern hasn't been released yet, but I'll let you guys know when it's up. I can't wait to start knitting on this one.
*Recipe for Gumdrop Cookies, if you're interested:
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup nuts (optional)
Mix butter and sugar. Add eggs, mix. Add sour cream, mix. Add flour, soda, and salt, mix. Add oatmeal and nuts (if you want), mix. Ta-da! Dough is done.
Scoop, spoon, plop, toss, or drop cookie-amount globs of dough on cookie sheet and gently press three gumdrops onto each one.
Bake at 400 degrees for 9-10 minutes.
My batch made exactly four dozen cookies this morning. Deeelicious.
