Let’s Review the December Baking Challenge
December 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Stained Glass Window Cookies
I always try to choose recipes where your creativity can shine and the December Sally’s Baking Challenge was no exception. We saw an array of different shapes and candies used– snowflakes and Christmas trees, cookies in the shape of your home state, snowflakes, stars, wreaths, and more. Instead of Jolly Ranchers, some used melted candy canes or butterscotch candies, and others tinted their sugar cookie dough green and used red candies to make a Grinch-inspired heart. (I want to try that next year!) I also loved the gingerbread house stained glass windows and the reindeer cookies with a red stained glass nose. From sparkling sugar to royal icing, each batch of cookies was perfectly unique and it was clear that a lot of you had fun in the process. I think this was my favorite challenge of 2020!
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Dorie:
“When I saw this recipe I was slightly intimidated by it, but you do such an excellent job Sally of breaking the recipe into steps, that it all came together beautifully! I’ve always made cookies that taste good, but aren’t beautiful. These cookies not only were very good, but they turned out beautiful! Thanks for the great and fun recipe!”
We gathered as many stained glass window cookies emailed photo entries as we could and included them below.
