Stained Glass Wreath Cookies

12 Days of Cookies - Day 12


  • 1 (16-ounce) tube sugar cookie dough
  • 1 bag assorted round hard candies (recommended: Lifesavers)
  • 1 small tube white decorating icing
  • 1 package silver dragees
  • 24 (8-inch) long pieces string or ribbon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with silicone baking pads.

Slice dough log at 1/4-inch intervals and place onto prepared baking sheets spaced 1 inch apart.

Press a 1-inch round cutter into the center of each cookie round. Remove the small circle of dough and replace it with a round hard candy.

Bake in oven 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from oven. While still warm, make a hole at the top of each cookie with a large straw. Place baking sheet on the cooling rack and cool completely.

When the cookies have completely cooled, use the decorative icing and evenly space 6 icing dots around the edges of each cookie. Lightly push the silver dragees into the icing dots. Allow icing to harden.

Place the 8-inch piece of ribbon through the hole at the top and tie the ends together.

Repeat with remaining cookies.

You can eat your cookies or hang them as ornaments on a Christmas tree or in a window.
