Gum Drop Cookie Slices

Pat Duran


This recipe is from 1974. This recipe was one I posted in my second cookbook, when my children were small- they loved these cookies, at Christmas-time I would use red and green cherries and candied pineapple instead of the gumdrops.They liked the gumdrop ones the best.
After awhile,I got the idea to make gum drop bars- they liked those too- the recipe is posted too!
