Sour Gummy Sugar Cookies

This recipe was improvised in the face of a lack of chocolate chips and nuts. The result was a soft chewy sugar cookie studded with chopped up Sour Patch Kids gummies. Initial raised eye brows dropped when they came out of the oven and were quickly decimated.

Sour Gummy Sugar Cookies on trayThese cookies are soft and chewy, studded with a bunch of sour gummies. I came up with them because we were craving cookies, but were lacking a lot of usual ingredients like chocolate chips and nuts. I can tell you that everyone's initial raised eyebrow to these cookies quickly turned into absolute delight. These did not last long in our house. I think you'll enjoy them, too.

I did not have enough butter to make the sugar cookie base the way I usually do, so I substituted one of the sticks of butter with some oil, using a total of 1 stick of butter and 1/3 cup of oil. They turned out perfect. You can omit the gummies to make a splendid sugar cookie on its own. Doesn't even need kneading and rolling.
