Very good...I had to put them in the freezer to make sure any were left for guests.

This is the one I remember the lady who made them soaked her gumdrops(no blask ones as stated)overnight in Mogan David wine before adding to the mixture they were divine

Is this a joke? 400 degrees is WAY too high....all cookies burned at only 8 minutes. No flavor despite the gumdrops.

Glad I found this recipe, I lost the cookbook it was in during our move.
