Stained Glass Cookies 玻璃曲奇

When I saw Jozelyn made this stained glass cookies, just inspired me to bake some for my son's coming Birthday party.

Both recipes I have seen also use FOX's candy, but the colour is not so outstanding, so I bought another brand (BON BON) candy to try out.

I find roll the dough into thin sheet then only refrigerated is quicker than roll it after refrigerated.

Never know the glass candy just so simple to make by just using candy only ^_^
Try not to make hollow cut centre too big, otherwise the candy couldn't spread to entire centre and result incomplete glass effect,  or take time to spread out and resulted cookie over baked (These tips learnt from my 1st attempted)

These were using BON BON candy, colour was outstanding..

This was using FOX's candy, actually look nice thought,  it has pastel colour and see through effect..

My children were so impressed with these cookies, and they said it tasted nice too..


Stained Glass Cookies 玻璃曲奇
*makes about 80pcs (depend on the size of cutter) 
200g unsalted butter, room temp
110g caster sugar
2tsp lemon juices
324g cake flour
24g corn flour
1/2tsp baking soda 
Fruity candy (FOX or BON BON brands) 
  1. Sift cake flour, corn flour and baking soda, set aside.
  2. Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
  3. Add in lemon juices and flour mixture, mix well.
  4. Use a rolling pin, roll the dough to a thin sheet (~4mm), keep in the fridge (30mins) to harden for easy handling.
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut dough into desired shapes. Transfer cookies to prepared baking sheets.
  6. Using a smaller cookie cutter or a knife, cut shapes into centers of cookies, reserving these center bits to add into extra dough.
  7. If cookies will be hung as ornaments or decorations, poke a small hole in the top of each cookie before baking.
  8. Bake at pre-heated oven at 160C for 10mins. Remove the tray from the oven.
  9. Cut candy to ½ or 1/3, place it into the hollowed-out centers of the half baked cookies, try to keep the candy within the centers. Any candy specks that fall on the cookie will color the cookie.
  10. Continue to bake for another 7-8mins, the candy should be melted and bubbling.
  11. Remove baking tray from oven and place on wire racks to cool. When cookies are completely cooled, remove and store in an airtight container. String with ribbon if you want to hang as an ornament.
