Valentine Heart Stained Glass Cookies!


These stained glass cookies are just too much fun not to put on my blog!  

I did a guest post over at Beckie's (Infarrently Creative) and made these into Snowmen and other Christmas shapes but today I am going to show you how to make 

Valentine Stained Glass Heart Cookies!




Make this recipe for your sugar cookie dough:

What you will need: 
(makes 12 - 15 cookies)

1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp butter
1 egg
3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla 
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Crushed hard candy pieces (suckers or jolly ranchers work great)




Roll into long "snakes"



Put candies in a plastic bag and use a hammer to crush the pieces.

Layer the candies evenly inside the dough.



Doesn't that just look like so much fun!!!!!

Bake at 375° for 9 min.  Let completely cool then peel off foil.



I hope you all enjoy doing this!  Kids, teachers and friends will love the beautiful cookies. :-)

Of course, you can do this with ANY season - how about a:

Shamrock for St Patrick's Day
Easter Egg or Cross for Easter
Pumpkin or Leaves for Fall

AND here are pictures of my Christmas Stained Glass Cookies!





ENJOY!!!!!

  2. I'm so glad to see this. We made these when I was little. I've seen recipes for stained glass cookies but not with the rope outline. I suppose they could have worked but I really wanted just the thin rope for the outline. I've been looking everywhere for just the right instructions.
