Stained Glass Window Cookies!

December 18, 2014

Nothing says Christmas like a big box of cookies! If you're like me, you've had your fair share of thumbprint, gingerbread, peanut butter, chocolate chip, and shortbread already. But it wouldn't be Christmas if there wasn't at least one more batch of cookies to eat! That's why I made some Stained Glass Window Cookies. I first made these with my mom when I was about four years old, and they've remained some of my favorites ever since. They're cute, fun, and you can even use them as ornaments, how neat!

You only need a few ingredients for this semi-homemade recipe. Sugar cookie mix, eggs and butter, and some hard candy!

First, mix the ingredients for the sugar cookie dough. I did this by hand as I don't have a mixer (hint hint, Santa) but if you do have a mixer, I recommend you use it. Then, smash up a few pieces of your hard candy with a spoon, this will make it easier for the "window" to melt evenly.

Roll out your dough and use whichever cookie cutters you see fit. If you'd like to hang your cookies as ornaments, now is the time to poke a little hole in the corner.

Once you've cut out your cookies and your little picture windows, fill them with your crushed candy and bake them for 6 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Only a week until Christmas now, I can't wait! Make sure you check out Sophie and Caelan's recipes today, as they've got some really yummy treats to share with you!
