Description

Kids love making these gorgeous cookies, and the recipe is based on store-bought sugar cookie dough, so it’s easy. Depending on their age, kids can help roll and cut out dough, sort candies into piles by color, smash the candies into smithereens, and fill the cookie cutouts with color. To make the cookies as shown you’ll need two star-shaped cookie cutters, one 4 ½ to 5 inches and one 2 ½ inches wide. And it’s essential to have nonstick baking mats (such as Silpat) or parchment paper to keep the melted candy “stained glass” from sticking. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.

    Directions

    1. Line 3 sheet pans with nonstick baking mats or parchment paper.
    2. Place cookie dough in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until smooth. Add ½ cup flour, the cornstarch, and vanilla and beat until combined.
    3. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness and cut into star shapes using a 4 ½-5-inch cookie cutter. Place cookies on the prepared pans 1 inch apart. Use a 2½-inch star cutter to remove the centers and also place them on the sheet pans.
