Stained Glass Cookies

These cookies start with a basic sugar cookie recipe, but the addition of crushed candies gives them a special appeal. To crush the candies simple place in a Ziplock bag and break with a rolling pin, it’s best to have a dishtowel under the bag as the shards are sharp and could damage the counters surface.
