Stained Glass Window Sugar Cookies
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • crushed hard candies, sorted by colors
  • aluminum foil
  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter with a hand mixer until softened. Then add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla and blend. Gradually beat in the flour. Form the cookies into a disk, wrap, and chill for an hour. Roll the chilled dough out on a lightly floured surface. Use a lightly floured cookie cutter to cut shapes and a small round cookie cutter to make the holes. Place the shapes on a foil lined cookie sheet. Add about half a teaspoon of the crushed candy to the hole. Bake the cookies in a 375 degree oven for about 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the foil for about 10 minutes. Peel off the foil.
