Easter Window Pane Cookies


My church had an activity for the women a few weeks ago.  It was a service auction.  We were all encouraged to bring some sort of service that could be traded from woman to woman in a game similar to the White Elephant game.

I decided to donate a treat for Family Home Evening (a night we set apart for a church lesson and games with our family) every Monday for the month of March.  I was so excited for the first treat because I’ve been wanting to try these fun Window Pane Cookies for a long time.

It did take me three tries to get the pane to come out right and then not break it while removing it from the cookie sheet, but it was worth it.  I’ve heard the family loved them and the kids around here sure did.

Easter Window Pane Cookies


  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • hard candies - I used Sour Jolly Ranchers


  1. Cream the butter and sugar.
  2. Beat in egg, vanilla and salt.
  3. Gradually add in the flour.
  4. Chill the dough for at least one hour. Overnight is ideal.
  5. Roll out then cut your dough with a large cookie cutter. Transfer to baking sheet either buttered or lined with foil and sprayed with a cooking spray.
  6. Now cut out the centers with a smaller cookie cutter.
  7. Set a hard candy in the center of the hole.
  8. Bake in 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the candy has melted.

    I saw the picture of these cookies at the top of your blog and thought, “oh another random Pinterest share, Yay!” But you made these! That’s just crazy. They look so complicated, but the recipe doesn’t sound too tricky…I don’t know if I’m brave enough.
