Stained Glass Cookies

What You Need:

  • Basic sugar cookie dough
  • Lifesavers
  • Baking sheet covered with tin foil
  • Plastic baggie
  • Hammer
  • Cookie cutters


  1. Cut out a shape of cookie dough with the cutter.
  2. With a knife, or with a smaller cookie cutter, cut out the center, but leave a 1/4 inch border.
  3. Place the cookie with the big hole in it on a cookie sheet covered with tin-foil.
  4. Sort the lifesavers by color and put them in plastic bags.
  5. Crush the lifesavers with the hammer, but be careful not to pound too hard or you’ll break the plastic bag (you can do this outside on the sidewalk).
