Stained Glass Cookies: Sweet Christmas How To Baking Ideas:

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Makes 10-15 biscuits

How To Make Stained Glass Cookies:

Ingredients:

220g butter, softened

100g Whitworths for Baking Light Soft Brown Sugar

350g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

1 tsp ground ginger or cinnamon

50g Whitworths for Baking Crunchy Demerara Sugar

A selection of fruit-flavoured boiled sweets in different colours

To Decorate:

50g Whitworths for Baking Super Fine Icing Sugar

1 – 2 tblsp of lemon juice

Coloured ribbon (narrow)

Stained Glass Cookies Method:

1.) Firstly, preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/ gas 4.

2.) Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

3.) Separate the boiled sweets into colours, place in separate plastic food bags and use a rolling pin to crush into pieces approximately 1cm and set aside.

4.) Beat the butter and Whitworths for Baking Light Soft Brown Sugar in a bowl, until pale and creamy.

5.) Sift the flour and spice into the mixture; add enough milk to make a workable dough.

6.) Use your hands to make a smooth dough.

7.) Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

8.) Sprinkle a little flour over the work surface, divide the dough into 2 pieces and roll it out so it is ½ cm thick.

9.) Using biscuit cutters, cut out Christmas shapes.

10.) Using smaller pastry cutters, cut out the middle of each biscuit and sprinkle the biscuits with a little Whitworths for Baking Crunchy Demerara Sugar.

11.) Carefully transfer the cookies to the baking trays with a fish slice.

12.) Place one or two pieces of sweet into the middle of each biscuit whole.

Time To Bake:

13.) Bake for 10 minutes or until the biscuits are just golden.

14.) Cool on the trays for a minute before making a small hole near the top of each biscuit with a skewer, so you can thread ribbon through the holes when they are cool.

15.) Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

16.) The biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

17.) Mix the Whitworths for Baking Icing Sugar with a little lemon juice or water to make a thick pipe-able icing.

18.) Make a cone out of greaseproof paper, cut a small hole in the tip and decorate the biscuits with the icing.

19.) Last but not least, when the icing is dry the biscuits are ready to hand on the tree!

    These biscuits look really cool. What happens to them if you hang them on the tree?

    • 2nd December 2012 / 7:34 pm

      Not sure Rhonda ( this is guest post) I would say not to eat them if you've hung them up for a while but in my house, they would not last 2 mins with me and the kids. A great thing to do is get some see-through plastic bags to wrap them tightly in if you want to eat them 🙂
