Step 3: How To Make Stained Glass Centers for Cookies

While your cut dough is enjoying some chill time in the freezer, prepare your candy for the stained glass centers. Unwrap all of your green hard candy (I used Jolly Ranchers. Life Savers are another popular choice.) and place it in a sealed Ziploc bag. Next, take out all of your day’s frustrations by smashing the candy with a kitchen mallet or rolling-pin until you have a bag full of tiny candy pieces. Note: You may want to use a towel to muffle the sound if Hubby is in the next room taking a well deserved nap.
These look awesome! I love the stained glass technique with cookies!
Thanks, Penolopy!
Oh I love anything that I get to smash something!! These look really cool, I just may give these a try....wish you could buy already unwrapped jolly ranchers!
Gotta love a baking project that lets you take out your day's frustrations! :)
