STAINED GLASS COOKIES
You will need a package of fruit flavored lifesavers and a package of refrigerator cookie dough for these cookies.

  • Unwrap a package of refrigerator cookie dough, slice ½ “ cookie rounds and place them on a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.
  • Let your children help you cut mini circles out of the center of each cookie. (This could be done with a small circle shaped cookie cutter or a clean 1” plastic jar lid.)
  • Make additional cookies with the cut out sections.
  • Place cookies on the cookie sheet so that they have room to spread out.
  • Let your children place one lifesaver into each cookie hole.
