TWD - Stained Glass Cookies
For Tuesday with Dorie this week, I made Stained Glass Cookies, the second holiday recipe for this month that we could bake in any order. I chose to make these second as I wanted to include them in my Christmas boxes.
I benefitted from the posts of other bakers who made these last time. I followed Mardi's advice and did not glaze these cookies with egg wash, leaving a white-ish cookie with "stained glass" inside. My "stained glass" was made by bashing up Coles lollipops with a hammer. I liked the lollipops because they come in little individual wrappers, which kept the crushed lollies inside until I was ready to release them.
These cookies turned out well from my perspective. The only thing that was a drawback for me was that they were quite fragile, so I broke a few lifting them off the trays. I did like the taste though, and the "stained glass windows" made them super cute for Christmas.
