Original recipe yields 5 dozen

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in the coconut, rolled oats, pecans and gumdrops. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets. Gently flatten cookies using a fork dipped in flour.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Great cookie! When cutting up your gumdrops, place them in a bowl and cover with sugar. Then use a pair of scissors to snip them in half. The sugar will stick to the new edge and will keep the drops nice and seperated. Then just strain out the sugar and you are left with perfectly sized gumdrops. Enjoy!

These were very tasty... I added more gumdrops than 1 cup, and make sure to get the really spicy ones to give this cookie more kick! I used butter rather than shortening and it worked well. Also, make sure to toast the pecans before adding them in, since that really brings out their flavor. Finally, I'd recommend pre-mixing the nuts, gumpdrops, oatmeal and coconut together before adding these ingredients into the dough... otherwise you have to stir the dough too much in the end and the cookies aren't quite as tender. Tasty cookies!

I loved these cookies. I omit the pecans (just b/c I do not like them). Use baking gums in the cookies, they come in just red,green,orange and yellow. These gumdromps are small so all you have to do is snip them in two with a pair of scissors~very quick! I used margarine instead of shortening and the cookies came out fine. Also I flatten them slightly with a spatula just as they come out of the oven, while still on the bakingn sheet, I find this makes them chewier (is that even a word?)then I remove them to cool as directed. Exactly as I remember from childhood~thanks for sharing an excellent recipe.
