Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

I recently saw a recipe for stained glass cookies made with hard candy or boiled sweets. They looked so pretty, but because I'm not a huge fan of those candies, I decided to make my own stained glass Christmas cookies using hard caramels instead.  I chose regular-flavor hard caramels, as well as coffee and lemon flavored ones for a more "grown-up" twist on this recipe. The result is a less transparent cookie for the opaque caramel, but that tastes infinitely better in my opinion! πŸ˜‰

This tart recipe uses all store cupboard (shop bought) ingredients, is super easy to make and comes together in a flash!
