Quick Cut Gumdrops

Oatmeal cookies with gumdrops are a popular treat in our house. But I’m the first to admit that chopping the little spicy gumdrops with a knife can be a sticky and lengthy job. So I came up with a faster and neater method. I simply dip my kitchen scissors in flour and snip, snip, snip the gumdrops. The process is so much quicker and cleanup’s easier, too. —Mary Guyer, Albany, New York
