Stained Glass Cookies Recipe

Stained Glass Cookies is a dream come true for me...Yes I had been eyeing these cookies for the past 2 years and this year somehow gained confidence and tried it.The hard candies are crushed to fill in the center holes and while baking it spread out giving the cookies a glossy look.

I clicked the cookies to hearts content and loved these clicks too...I couldn't take my eyes off,aren't they looking pretty?! :) I used basic cookie dough for this recipe and it came out perfect.

The dough should be firm enough to cut so make sure to refrigerate until firm to cut to get neat shapes.
