Window Pane Cookies

2. roll the dough – Roll the dough out onto the back of a cookie sheet to make cutting shapes easier.
3. cookie cutter fun
4. add the Starburst® – Use a smaller sized cookie cutter in the center of each cookie to create an inner shape to hold the candy. Place half a Starburst® candy in the center of each cookie, or mix up candies to get interesting color combinations.
Cooking with store-bought cookie dough and candy can result in fun, but unpredictable shapes and color. For more consistent results follow these tips: Roll your cookie dough out onto oven safe parchment, a silicone baking sheet or a greased baking pan to make the cookies easier to remove. Bake cookies for 5 minutes in a 350˚ F preheated oven. Remove cookies, fill center with 1/2 a Starburst® candy. Place cookies back into oven and carefully watch until candy begins to bubble (about 4 to 6 minutes). Remove immediately and cool before serving.
