other recipe, which is quite different from this recipe.
Abby's Sweets for hosting this fun, supportive cookie group! I have really enjoyed getting to know so many wonderful baking bloggers and picking up great cookie recipes along the way!
These gumdrop cookies live up to their name. The very centers are a bit soft, yet the edges are crispy, sugary, melt in your mouth goodness! I used the "Spice Drops" version of gumdrops, which added a bit of zing to the bite:) Right after baking, the drops are also softer and chewier, which complements the crisp cookie. Sugar Crispies would be a delicious, colorful addition to any cookie platter!
