To prep for the AWESOME Christmas cookie exchange that my workplace will be having at the end of December, I decided to do a little cookie baking on Saturday night.
Ruth and Old Man Schenk came by first to go climbing and second to help with the masterful cookies.
We made Stained Glass Cookies. It’s relatively simple, though mildly tedious. All that you gotta do is make a butter, sugar, and honey batter. Add some flour. Freeze it until the dough is workable then cut into fun star shapes.
Then cut out a second shape in the middle of the first.
Fill the centers with crushed life savers and then cook in the oven at 325 for about 5-7 minutes. The life savers melt and become somewhat translucent hard candy ‘stained glass.’
They are pretty to look at, but overall, not a fun or delicious cookie to bake.
