Stained Glass Star Cookies Recipe

Stained Glass Star Cookies Recipe
You will need:
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 8 oz hard candies such as Life Savers or Jolly Ranchers in assorted colors
- Graduated 6-Pointed Star Cookie Cutter Set

Instructions:
1. Beat butter, sugar, honey, egg and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well. Cover. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place dough on lightly floured surface; roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with 2-1/2- to 3-inch floured cookie cutters. Use smaller version of each cutter to make an interior cut, leaving 1/2- to 3/4-inch border of dough. Cut out and remove dough from center of each shape; set aside.

3. Place cutouts on baking sheets covered with parchment paper. Shape remaining dough into ball; re-roll to make additional cutouts.

4. Crush each color of candy separately between 2 layers of wax paper with mallet. Spoon crushed candy inside centers of cutouts.

5. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until candy is melted and cookies are lightly browned. Cool cookies completely before removing from parchment.

6. Cookie dough can be wrapped tightly and refrigerated up to 1 week, or placed in freezer container and frozen up to 3 months.

How to Make Cookies into Ornaments:
Before baking cookies, use a drinking straw to poke a hole in the top of each cookie cutout. Bake and cool as directed. Thread a piece of ribbon through the hole to use for hanging.
