Tempt My Tummy Tuesday #2

Lisa and Lana host Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays. To join the fun this week, visit

I had so much fun last week, I wanted to join again this week.

Jelly Bean Cookies

1 cup jelly beans, cut up (if you use Jelly Belly's instead of jelly beans, your cookies will have other flavors)
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream together butter and the two sugars. Add egg, baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Stir in flour and oatmeal, add in jelly beans. Mix well. Heat oven to 350°. Drop rounded spoonfuls of batter two inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Makes three dozen.

Note: I have doubled this recipe and it just didn't work. Make two batches, instead of a double recipe.
