How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare dough for Favorite Cutout Cookies. In step 2, roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut cookies into desired shapes and place on silicone- or cooking parchment-lined baking sheets (see notes). Use smaller floured cutters or a small, sharp knife to cut out and lift a design from the center of each cookie (such as a small star from the center of a larger star or a round), leaving at least a 1/2-inch border around cutouts.

Step 2

Chop transparent, colored hard candies into 1/4-inch pieces. Fill cutout portions of dough just to the rim with candy; use one color in each cutout.

Step 3

Bake in a 300° oven until cookies are golden and candy is melted, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets until candy is firm. Slide a thin spatula under cookies to release and transfer to racks to cool completely.
