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
