Christmas is already almost upon is! Every year Christmas creeps up on me and surprises me without fail. You’d think I’d begin to get used to it creeping up on me like that, but no. It still takes me by surprise every year.
I’m not much of a person who bakes because it’s the ‘right season’. I’ve made summer-type salads in the middle of winter and hot cross buns when it’s nowhere near Easter. Christmas, however, is one time of year in which I enjoy baking Christmas-related goodies.
And these stained glass sugar cookies are no exception.
How festive do they look? The cookie part is crumbly and buttery, and the ‘stained glass’ bit is sweet and toffee-like. So you can get your cookie and toffee-fix in the one bite!
They’re fun to make too. Involve the kids if you wanted to, or host a Christmas cookie baking day. Box them up nicely and you’ve got a perfect Christmas gift. Or cut out a hole at the top before baking them, and hang them on your tree as edible decorations. Too easy.
