I was watching a TV show about a month ago showing an expensive cookie recipe using butter, flour, egg, almond meal and caster sugar (extra fine sugar for everyone in the US). The TV host made up the dough, rolled it out thinly (3-5mm).
She used a 11 inch angel cookie cutter and cut out angel shapes, then also cut out stars in the middle of the angel. In the star space she put in crushed candy.. (I used hard fruit drops) in reds or greens. When cooked at 350 deg the cookies baked and the candy melted in the star shape. They were called Stained Glass Almond Angels.
Could you give us your recipe for the dough? And what kind of candies did you buy for the "stained glass star"? Did you really use an 11 inch angle cookie cutter, like you mentioned that the TV host did? Sounds like an easy Christmas craft for kids at school to do for their parents at Christmas time next year.
Hey, i bet you could use this idea for really nice Valentine cookies also. A heart shaped cookie cutters in different sizes would be really cute. And what a hit at parties or gatherings!
