Stained Glass Sugar Cookies

1 Package of sugar cookie mix
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Jolly Ranchers

Baking Sheet
Wax Paper
Cookie Cutters (one large, one small)

Preheat oven to 375F

  1. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  3. Gradually blend the dry ingredients.
  4. Roll out dough out flat.
  5. Cut out the cookies with a large (heart) cookie cutter and transfer to a baking sheet. Then cut out the center of the cookies with a smaller (heart) cookie cutter.
  6. Place 2 Jolly Ranchers in the center of each cookie.
    (can break up Jolly Ranchers if you'd like more than 2 colors in each cookie.)
  7. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
  8. Let cookies stand on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
    (To prevent sticking, place waxed paper between layers of cookies.)
