Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Jack Skellington Stained Glass Cookies
With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.
I have the perfect Halloween recipe for you this time. If we’re talking Halloween, then who else but Jack Skellington is the man for the job? Here’s my recipe to make Jack Skellington Stained Glass Cookies.
70g unsalted butter
50g icing sugar (or high quality white sugar if you don’t have)
A pinch of salt
110g weak flour
10g black cocoa
1 white chocolate pen
Hard candy of your choice crushed into small pieces
*To crush the candy, you can put into a zip lock bag and use a rolling pin
Place all ingredients except the egg into a food processor and blitz. After, place the egg into the blitzed mix and blitz once again. Once combined, wrap with cling film and place into the refrigerator for 1+ hours until set.
Use a rolling pin to roll out circles of equal thickness for Jack’s head. Use a cutter to cut out the eyes, and place into the refrigerator one more to set.
Bake in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes and take out again.
Place your crushed candy into the eye holes and bake for a further 5 minutes.
*The candy will melt into place and even out, so feel free to pile on the pieces
*Be careful not to overcook the candy as it will turn brown
Allow to cool. Be very careful handling and placing down the cookies as the eyes will be delicate. Decorate Jack’s nose and mouth with the chocolate pen and he’s ready for your Halloween party!
