  • 15 Sugar cookies Double the recipe
  • 15 Rock candies Crushed, Various colors, E.g. Jolly Ranchers or Life Savers


  • Roll out cookie dough between 2 sheets of wax paper at half inch thickness. 
  • Use a large cutter to cut out a piece and then, use a small cutter to cut out the center. Discard this little piece.
  • Place the large hollow cookie on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper. 
  • Add some crushed candy in the center and use a toothpick to spread it out evenly. Only fill halfway to prevent candy from overflowing. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown and candy is fully melted. 
  • Let cookies cool completely before removing them from the tray. Enjoy!
