DIRECTIONS

  • *Youmay use any sugar cookie dough recipe you like- to include purchased sugar cookie dough.
  • You only need as much dough as will fit on each of your cookie sheets once.
  • Separate Life Savers or lollypops (remove sticks) by color and place each color of candy into a separate small resealable plastic baggie.
  • Bash the candy inside the bag with a rolling pin to crush into small pieces.
  • Roll out your cookie dough to an 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Using a large cookie cutter, cut out shapes from the dough.
  • Transfer cookie dough shapes onto ungreased FOIL lined cookie sheets using a rubber spatula.
  • Take a smaller cookie cutter and cut out another shape in the center of each cookie shape.
  • For example, use a large leaf shape, then a smaller leaf shape cutter to cut out the center.
  • The shapes don't have to match but one needs to be smaller than the other.
  • You may also use a knife to cut out holes in the centers instead.
  • Fill the holes made in each cookie shape with the crushed candy pieces.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for about 10 minutes, or until cookies are baked and candies have melted to form stained glass candy centers.
  • Allow to cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet.
