I got big cutters and I cannot lie. Found these several weeks ago. The tree is 7+1/2' x 7' and the ornament is 8" x 6". I had never made stained glass cookies before so I turned to the interwebs to find a recipe and instructions. This one at babble.com was perfect. The cookies are very tasty and there was little spread when baking.
The only change I made was I divided the dough and colored it. These are really simple to make, even with this extra step.
The recipe said to use Jolly ranchers but others I read said to use Life Savers to fill the cutouts. I bought both and crushed them with a stone motar and pestle.
So I had lots of pretty colors to work with.
After cutting out the cookies, I filled the open spaces.
With the leftover dough I made a tie dyed version.
And now the givaway - I have an extra set of these fabulous cutters and will send them to one reader.
They will arrive in a box with all of this stuff as well.
