Stained Glass Sugarcookies Recipe

Valentine's Day sugar cookie recipe

This week I thought we would make some biscuits using one of our favourite Christmas recipes. We made stained glass cookies, although I didn’t write it up as I ran out of time. They were so cute though and I liked the dough recipe we used which didn’t need chilling in the fridge. So it seemed perfect to use for Valentine’s cookies.

Ingredients To Make Stained Glass Sugarcookies

  • 50 g (2oz) sugar
  • 50g (20z) butter
  • 1/2 egg
  • 115g (4.5 oz) plain flour
  • 15g (0.5oz) cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • red boiled sweets

Method For Making Stained Glass Sugarcookies

  • Cream the sugar and butter.
  • Beat the egg into a separate bowl. Gradually mix half  in with the butter and sugar.
  • Sift the flour and cornflour in to the mixture and beat together with the vanilla essence.
  • Form  into a dough and roll out until 5mm (1/4 inch) thick.
  • Use a large cutter to cut into heart shapes using a small heart cutter in the middle.
  • Put the boiled sweets into a bag and beat into fine crumbs. Put into the middle of the heart. You can use a solid sweet which did work at Christmas for me but when I tried this time leaked over the side – I think because my heart shaped cutter for the centre was too small.
  • Use a drinking straw to make small circles so the biscuits can be hung up.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes at 180 C, 350 F, gas mark 4
  • You can decorate with white icing if you wish – although they look lovely plain.
