Stained Glass Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup light corn syrup
about 1 lb clear hard candy in different colors
1 egg white beaten with 2 tsp water for glaze

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and
salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat butter, brown sugar
and vanilla together until light and fluffy. With mixer running
at medium speed, gradually drizzle in corn syrup. Stir in flour
mixture 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition. Form
dough into a ball; cover and set aside 15 minutes.

Group the candies by color. Place one color at a time in a plastic
bag (I double bag to prevent mess!). Use a hammer to crush candy
into about 1/4 inche pieces. Place each color of crushed candy
into a separate small bowl.

Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with aluminum foil. On
a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a rough circle 1/4
inch thick. Cut out dough using 2-4" cookie cutters. Use tiny
cookie cutters or canape cutters to cut out designs in each cookie.
Leave at least 1/4 inch of dough between small cut outs or cookie
will not hold together. Arrange cookies 1 inch apart on prepared
baking sheets. Fill spaces in each cookie with crushed candy just
to the surface of the dough. Do not overfill. Brush dough surfaces
with egg glaze.

Bake 7-10 minutes or just until candy is melted and bubbly. Cool
on baking sheet 20 minutes before peeling foil from back of cookies.

These guys are just beautiful-- sparkly and colorful and unique.
I use a set of graduated star cookie cutters to make these in all
different shapes.

Recipe freezes extremely well and doubles easily.
