These are jolly rancher candies, that are getting ready to get a good smashing.
That was fun. And it almost looks like sea glass now.
How I would love to find the colors of these little gems on the shore!
I've never made stained glass cookies before, but I looked all this up on-line and it looked pretty straightforward. So, with a few of my cookie cutters and a batch of sugar cookie dough, I began experimenting using pastry bag tips and other smaller cookie cutters to make cutouts in each cookie. After adding the jolly rancher shards to the cutouts, I baked them in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. To assure the candy doesn't separate from the cookie when they are done, they must be cooled on a rack for at least 5 minutes before removing them from the pan. Here they are right before I put them into the oven.
Out of the oven and all cooled, they really do resemble stained glass.
Guess who's been drinking too much coffee today?
Like we needed more sugar.
