A friend of mine posted cookies similar to these on Facebook.  She had made some cookies with her 3-year old son…and said they took a lot longer to make than she anticipated.  I had never seen anything like it before!  She found them on the Martha Stewart website.  So of course I went to the website to look them up, and watched the video, and now I’m excited to give these a try!  I need an excuse though. 

They sure do look fun and yummy.  And something I didn’t know…when making sugar cookie dough, omit the baking powder so that the cookies don’t rise, and keep their cookie-cutter shape!

Here’s a link to Martha’s “how-to”: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/stained-glass-critter-cookies
