  1. 1 cup butter, softened
  2. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  10. 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  11. 1 1/2 cups gumdrops, finely chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars with a mixer at medium speed until creamy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape sides of bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in oats and gumdrops. Scoop dough into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on prepared pans.
  4. Bake until lightly browned, 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  1. Use kitchen scissors to snip gumdrops into small pieces.
