Megan`s Stained Glass Cookies!

5 years ago

This is a recipe I featured a few weeks ago on my blog using crushed jolly ranchers to create a cookie that`s delicious, creative, and beautiful! I was really pleased with how they turned out and was hesitant to put sugar in the oven because it usually burns on me but rest assured, this recipe and method works like a beauty. Hope you enjoy!

1/2 c. butter, room, unsalted
1 egg
½ c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
blue jolly ranchers or other blue hard candy, crushed.
Optional ingredients: icing, sprinkles for decoration

Quick royal icing recipe: beat 2 large egg whites with 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice with electric mixer until combined. Gradually add 3 cups of confectioners sugar until desired consistency.

Directions: cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in vanilla and egg. Combine with flour, baking powder, and salt. Chill dough overnight or for at least 45 min. before baking, crush blue jolly ranchers with a sharp knife or smash while wrapped in tea towel with hammer. Preheat oven to 400 F, roll out onto floured surface to a quarter inch thickness. Cut out heart shapes with cookie cutter and place 1 inch apart on ungreased parchment paper on cookie sheet. Bake for 6 minutes. Take out cookies and immediately cut out desired shape into the cookies while still soft. Place enough crushed jolly ranchers in the cutouts to cover the area and pop cookies back in oven at 200F for approximately 5 minutes. Surface of candy should come out glossy and cookies should now be completely done, with golden edges. Let sit for 15 minutes, or until candy surface is hard to the touch, carefully peel off from parchment paper and decorate if desired .
