Stained Glass Valentine Cookies
2-1/4 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar
1 c. butter,softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp. lemon extract
1/2 tsp. salt
jolly ranchers or lifesavers(pink & red for Valentine's Day),crushed
2 cookie cutters,same shape,different sizes
In the bowl of your mixer,cream together the butter and sugar.Add the vanilla & lemon extracts.Add the yolk,salt ,baking powder & flour.Mix until combined.
Roll into a ball,then flatten into a disk.Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
***I place the candies in a plastic bag,and hit them with a rolling pin to crush them.Another method would be to use a food processor.
