Stained glass sugar cookies

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • What you need:

    Cookie dough (you can use your own recipe of you want, I'll share mine though)

    Jolly ranchers

    Two different sized cookie cutters (I used hearts because it's around Valentines day, but circles would be great for christmas or egg shapes for Easter etc.)

    Space to roll out the dough and a rolling pin

    Wax paper

    Cookie sheets


  • For the cookie dough

    3/4 cups of butter
    1 cup of sugar
    2 eggs
    1.5 or 2 tsp of vanilla
    2.5 cups of flour
    1 tsp baking powder

  • Mix together butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla until mainly smooth

    Slowly add in flour

    Add in baking powder

    Chill for at least an hour

  • Place a piece of wax paper large enough to cover the cookie sheet on the cookie sheet

    Sprinkle some flour over a table top so the dough doesn't stick

    Roll out the dough to desired height

    Use the larger sized cookie cutter to cut the dough

    Remove this piece of cookie dough from the rest of the dough

    Take the smaller cookie cutter and cut out the center of the removed piece of cookie dough

    Place the outside (the cookie dough with the hole in the center) on the wax paper cookie sheet

  • Depending on the size of the cookie you chose, you can use one or two jolly ranchers

    I like to use two so that the colors mix

    Place your jolly rancher(s) in the hole in the cookie dough

    (if you used my recipe)
    Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes


    Your house may get smokey and smell like something is burning, but I assure you that nothing is burning

  • After the cookies are done baking, KEEP THEM ON THE WAX PAPER, DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THEM OR THERE WILL BE A MESS AND YOUR COOKIE WILL BREAK, remove the wax paper with the cookies onto a cooling rack

    Allow cookies to cool over night so the jolly ranchers aren't still melted, remove from the wax paper and enjoy :)
