MAGIC WINDOW COOKIES Kathy Fleming of Winchester
INGREDIENTS: ¾ cup butter or margarine 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 ¼ cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 6 bags hard candy in different colors
DIRECTIONS: Mix first seven ingredients to form a stiff dough; wrap and chill for at least one hour. Separate candy by color and crush each color separately, using a mallet or food processor. Roll out chilled dough ¼” thick on floured surface, using cookie cutters that have a circle or other cut-out in the middle. Place cut out dough shapes on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper and lightly greased. Fill cut-out areas with candy until they are filled and level with dough. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes, or until cookies are barely golden. Cool so that candy is firm before removing from cookie sheet. ... See MoreSee Less
