Stella Stained Glass Cookies Sticky Wings

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone  had a terrific  weekend.


Today, I  like to  showcase  Stella "Stained Glass Cookies"  Sticky Wings.  She is a  new limited  edition digi stamp and will  only  be   available in my  shop thru Christmas.  So  please  make  sure  you  get  her   before  she   flutters  away.

Here is a  striking  card that  Manderly, my   design team coordinator and  assistant  created which  features  this  adorable  digi of mine.   Manderly colored  this image  using her  favorite medium.. colored pencils.

 
  

Now  as promised yesterday for the  next  two  weeks  we will have a  blog post  dedicated  to   a  Sticky  Wing  ...along with their favorite holiday dessert  recipe( wink).

Stella's   is none other than  Stained Glass Cookies,  which  are  truly  fun to  make.  Here is the  recipe....

Ingredients

About 15 brightly colored hard candies (ring-shaped, rectangular or round)
1
cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3
cup sugar
1/2
cup light corn syrup
2
teaspoons vanilla
1/4
teaspoon lemon extract, if desired
3
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3/4
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place each color candy in separate resealable freezer plastic bag; seal bag. With rolling pin, coarsely crush candy; set aside.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in corn syrup, vanilla and lemon extract. On low speed, gradually beat in flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 3 Divide dough in half. On floured cloth-covered work surface, roll each half to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with 3-inch Christmas tree-shaped cookie cutter. Cut out and remove several smaller dough shapes from each cookie. Place tree shapes 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. If desired, reroll small cutouts with remaining dough. Fill each hole in tree shapes with about 1/2 teaspoon crushed candy.
  • 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and candy is melted. Place cookie sheets on cooling racks; cool cookies 8 minutes. With back of metal pancake turner, gently lift warm cookies from foil; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes, before storing in loosely covered containers.
