Nothing zests holidays like Stained-Glass Wreath Cookies and they looked difficult -- can I just tell you they are super simple.
All you have to do is take this sugar cookie dough and just cut it and lay them on your baking sheet. And then with the biscuit cutter by the way, this is the smallest size you’re going to get in your set. Go ahead and just make a hole in the center of your cookie. What goes in that hole, these hard candy suckers, look how great. They fit right in there, perfectly, beautiful red, and purple if you want a sugarplum. You can use any color you liked in the rainbow. Now, those go into the oven 350 degrees for 10 minutes and they are done.
Here’s the trick. While they’re still warm, what you want to do is take a straw and just make a little hole in the top. Now the reason why you want to do these while your cookie is still warm is because if you did them before you bake them, that hole would close up and then you would never get your ribbon through there to hang it on the tree.
Now, to further decorate them like these pretty little Dragees that are on my cookies, I had just used some decorating icing, it comes in a tube with a basic tip to make little areas where I want to put my Dragees. And this icing is kind of like edible glue. When it comes to decorating with Dragees, these are just little hard candy. They’re almost like beads, a bead of candy. And they do come in all sorts of fun, festive color. So, if you could find those, certainly matched up your cookies, and that’s all you have to do to make stained-glass cookies.
Now, to go on the tree, just choose a little bit of festive ribbon, then you’re going to take it and you’re going to put that right through the hole, pull your ribbon through. Now, you could hang it from a tree a wreath or whatever you like, so yummy and so edible and very festive. Stained-Glass Wreath Cookies, happy holidays, I’m Sandra Lee.
