Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 6 Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 3 cookie sheets with nonstick foil. Knead dough and flour together until smooth.
  2. 2 of 6 Roll out dough to scant 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out desired shapes; transfer to foil-lined cookie sheets. Using smaller cutters, cut out centers of cookies. Repeat with remaining dough. Use a straw to make a small hole in the top of each cookie.
  3. 3 of 6 Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are golden and almost cooked through. Remove sheets from oven. Meanwhile, place like-colored candies in plastic bags. Using a small saucepan or hammer, crush candies.
  4. 4 of 6 Fill cutouts with candy pieces. Return cookie sheets to oven for 2 to 3 minutes longer or until candies are melted and smooth. Do not overbake or candies will lose their color. Transfer sheets to wire racks. Cool completely. Peel cookies from foil.
  5. 5 of 6 Pipe decorative patterns on cookies using different color icing. Let icing dry about 2 hours or until firm.
  6. 6 of 6 Tie a ribbon through hole. Hang as an ornament or near a window. Note: For cutters, visit coppergifts.com or downtowndough.com.
