Photobucket

Merry Christmas to all my readers :) 
 
Hope Santa has granted all your wishes!!! :) So he did for me too.. Shhhh will share the granted wish with you later. 

I'm celebrating this Christmas with cute little stained glass cookies :) I baked close to 100 cookies yesterday and have been sharing it with all. 

These see through cookies make the normal experience of eating a cookies into an exciting one for kids since its a combi of cookies + candy :) 

Its very simple to make and for sure a lovely gift for this Christmas :)

Ingredients:

Maida (All purpose flour) - 3 1/2 cups
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Butter - 1 1/2 cups
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Milk - 2 tblsp
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Transparent sugar candies - 10 (I used fox candies)

Method:

Sieve maida and baking powder and keep it aside. 

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla essence and milk to it and beat well. Finally add maida and baking powder mixture and mix well until it rolls into a soft dough. 

Roll the dough into a large rectangle and cut into desired shape. Make a smaller hole in the center using similar shaped cutter. Place them on a butter paper lined baking tray.

Crush the candies using a rolling pin. Fill the cookie center hole with the broken pieces of candy. 

Preheat oven to 180°C and bake for 10-15 mins. 

Allow it to cool down for a while and slowly remove from the baking sheet.

Enjoy looking through the cookies ;)

This quantity yields 7 to 8 dozens of cookies depending on the size.

See to that the hole in the cookies is big enough to show up the glass effect. 

Pierce a small hole on top of the cookies before baking so that you can hang them in your tree.

wow they look picture perfect,,, would love to try these... so do we need to put the crushed candy on the baking tray directly (inside the hole of the cookies), meaning the candy crush will touch the baking tray? Does it not stick?
