Stained Glass Church Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

Our church just called a new pastor a few months ago. With the excitement of him taking this prominent position in our church, and with his family moving all the way from Florida to join us, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to make him and the church staff some cookies to celebrate.

After making the Stained Glass Raindrop Cookies a while back, I immediately thought to use Jolly Rancher hard candies for some stained glass windows in my little church cookies. :)


First cut out a mini cross shape out of house or building cookies (cutter found here).
(see photo below)

Next, crush up Jolly Ranchers, keeping the colors separate. Carefully spoon the crushed candies into the empty cross shape, continuing to keep the colors separate. (If they get mixed together, they melt into an ugly color.)

Make sure to cool the cookies with parchment paper underneath them.  
The melted candy wants to stick to everything else.

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, outline and flood them (including the inset cross shape) with white glaze.
(see photo below)

Allow the glaze to dry for approximately 4 hours and then press this wood panel texture mat over the churches.

After the cookies have dried overnight (preferably on wire racks as seen below),
brush them lightly with dry Elephant Gray Elite dust.

In order to get the back side of the stained glass candy to dry enough so it doesn't stick to the bag, placed the cookies on wire racks and allowed them to thoroughly dry for a few hours.
