Stained Glass Christmas Sugar cookies

I saw these stained glass sugar cookies in a Martha Stewart magazine and wanted to give them a try. She made hers into ornaments but I knew they'd be eaten as soon as they were made so why bother. If you want them to be ornaments add a hole at the top and add string.
First you take hard candies (Jolly Ranchers) and crush them up into small pieces

Then you cut out the cookiesand put them on the cookie sheet and the use a knife to cut an area in the center to put the candies.
Put in the candies and refrigerate for 15 minutes and then bake a usual. Take out before edges brown to avoid, bubbling in the stained glass part.

My twist, we were eating candy canes so I thought why not try them. The other thing a tried was using several different color  Jolly Ranchers in one cookie to give a kind of church stained glass look both turned out really cute.
