Stained Glass Window COOKIES

  • These Stained Glass Window Cookies are amazing! They will add an incredible glow to your Christmas tree and you can eat them, that is just an added perk. This video shows how to make the candy that creates the stained glass look. The stained glass is made of lollipop candy. I divide the liquid candy in several heat resistant custard cups. If the candy hardens up in the custard cup I can just pop it into the microwave for 10 seconds and the candy turns to liquid again. Which means I do not have to rush to fill in the windows of the cookies. START by make the cookies ahead. This is the cookie recipe I used:
    1 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 TB clear vanilla
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    4 cups flour
    decorator sugars
    cut shapes, bake 350 F till a little golden
    Roll to 1/4 inch thick. When cutting out the cookies, use a large cutter. Place the cookie on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using a smaller cookie cutter, cut a shape out of the center of that cookie. That is the hole the stained glass candy will fill. decorate, bake
    The candy recipe for the stained glass:
    1 cup water
    2 cups sugar
    2.3 cup corn syrup
    1/4 tsp salt
    later when cooking complete add 1/2 tsp clear almond extract

      Oh yes, These Stained Glass Window cookies are so cool. Make the cookies way ahead of time and freeze them. Then you will be all ready to just make the candy to fill in the spaces. Thanks so much for watching and commenting. Margie

      Hi you guys nice to hear from you again.Yes the original recipe was on the back of the Gold Medal Flour package. They did call for crushed life savors. The raw cutouts were placed on a cookie sheet and the broken life savors were sprinkled in the spaces and then the cookies were baked. I never thought that they looked very nice. The candy would bubble and burn. and never quite melted out all the way to fill in the spaces. I decided to make them this way and they just look so nice.
