One of my favorite cookies recipes. The dough is just sweet enough to match the candy. I crush the candy into almost a powder and it melts perfectly!

I have NEVER made as stained glass cookie, but have OFTEN used this for decorated "sugar" cookies. I find it easy to work with & my 5 qt Kitchen Aid mixer handles a double recipe easily. Receive many compliments on the taste of these cookies & have used for bridal/baby, birthday, party/showers/favors/treats, etc. I will continue to use & share this terrific recipe.

These cookies were a total let down for me. The picture made them look so pretty and festive so I thought I'd try them. The dough was okay, but I couldn't get the candies in the middle to melt, or they only melted a little but the cookie was getting brown so I had to take them out of the oven. They tasted okay, esp when you got a bite of lifesaver, but overall a total disappointment.

we read the reviews about the lifesavers sticking we sprayed the foil with cooking spray before putting the cookies on the baking sheet it seemed to help a lot an they didn't stick at all

I tried to make these cookies because they are so pretty, the little inside cut out was all I got to keep out of the deal. I couldn't get the "stained glass" portion of the cookie off the tinfoil without completely breaking the cookie into a million peices. Anyone have any suggestions?

I used crushed candy canes instead of life savers for a more festive cookie. They turned out great! The cookie itself turned out a little too crunchy so I may experiment with the dough.

I had a difficult time preparing these cookies although it could have been the cookie cutters I used ( plastic ). The candy center did not melt quite as I had planned either. I will try this recipe again when I have more time to devote to it.

difficult to cut out the inside of shapes, where crushed lifesavers will go - also prettier than they taste

Make sure you put in enough of the candy otherwise there will be holes. Kids loved this! Don't forget the foil underneath - they do stick!
