  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, butter and egg just until a dough forms.
  • 2
    Scoop and roll dough into 36 (1-inch) balls; space about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Using thumb or forefinger, make a deep indent in the center of each cookie.
  • 3
    Transfer baking sheets to refrigerator for 20 minutes or freezer for 10 minutes to firm up dough.
  • 4
    Bake cookies 8 to 10 minutes until nearly done. Lightly press 1 gummy bear candy into the indent of each cookie, then bake cookies another 2 minutes until gummy bear is fully melted and cookie is set.
  • 5
    Cool cookies 3 minutes on cookie sheets, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 6
    In a small bowl, heat white chocolate chips in microwave on high for 1 minute; stir, then heat in 15-second intervals, stirring after each, just until chips are melted and smooth. Transfer mixture to a re-sealable plastic bag and snip off one corner.
  • 7
    Drizzle white chocolate over fully cooled cookies. Allow icing to set completely before serving.

Expert Tips

  • After drizzling white chocolate, sprinkle cookies with sprinkles or colored sugar for extra pizzazz.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

More About This Recipe
  • These easy cookies will light up your guests like fireworks. Three cheers for the red, white and blue... gummy bear thumbprint cookies, that is! These patriotic treats are perfect for your holiday cookouts and potlucks, or if you just feel like showing a little pride for the good ol’ US of A—and for cookies. I understand. These thumbprint cookies are a riff on this recipe (inspired by The Baking Robot) and they’re so easy to make, which means less time in front of the oven and more time to enjoy the outdoors, lighting sparklers and gobbling down hot dogs (and eventually, these cookies). Let the icing set completely before serving the cookies. Having fireworks go off when you make your entrance with these treats is entirely optional (though highly recommended). I mean, who doesn’t want to cheer for these cookies?
