Ingredients

  • Sugar Cookie Dough recipe
  • green paste food colouring (optional)
  • 1/2 cup clear hard candies red
  • 1/2 cup clear hard candies yellow
  • 1/2 cup clear hard candies orange

Method

Tint dough with colouring if desired.

Cut parchment paper to fit baking sheet; place paper on work surface. Place dough on paper; roll out on paper to 1/4-inch (1 cm) thickness. Using 7-1/2-inch (19 cm) Christmas tree-shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes; remove scraps. With round mini-cutters, cut holes out of trees. Using skewer or straw, cut 1/4-inch (5 mm) hole at top of each. Place dough and paper on baking sheet.

Separating colours, crush candies. Spoon into holes, mounding slightly.

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven for about 10 minutes or until light golden on bottom and edges. Let cool on pan on rack for 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
