Editors Review

Today, Chef Tawnya is sharing one of her family recipe and it’s a little twist in your regular oatmeal cookie. The surprise element is gumdrops hidden inside the baked cookie which gives a nice gooey texture to crispy cookie. In a nutshell, all it requires is adding gumdrops to the cookie mixture and bake it as usual. These are great as desserts and ideal for kid's parties, kids would just love them as much as you would do.
