Soft butter mix with both types of sugar until fluffy cream. Add the honey and vanilla and again crashed. Put the egg and mix again with a mixer. Then the mixture was added to the sieved baking powder and salt flour and kneaded dough. Dough gets brittle, but can fit into a ball. The dough is divided into two parts and each roll of the crust with a thickness of 0.7 cm between two sheets of baking paper. Together with paper so boring sheet put in refrigerator for at least 1 hour (and no more than 24 hours, if you stay longer is better to wrap himself in something - not absorb odors and not dried). Candy should be fully argued on sucking. Separate colors and bruised in a mortar (or hammer) - as in large pieces chopped walnuts, need not be too finely. Heat the oven to 180-190C. Remove the first sheet of dough, leave the bottom sheet baking paper and cut into shapes (larger). The remainder of the dough was removed. Inside the cut shapes are cut smaller ones - can small shapes, with a cap or carefully with a knife, as importantly to leave at least 2-3 mm * wall *. Remove internal shapes and put in the allotted cut dough. Finished shapes move into the baking pan with paper baking paper. * Windows * In a small spoon is placed less than crushed candy - roughly fill the hole. Do not worry, if uneven, baking melts and spills. The cookies are put to bake in preheated oven for 9-10 minutes or until they turn red at the edges. Remove from oven and leave the 10th minute to cool in the tin. Cool cookies are placed in a box and can be stored for at least one week. So proceed with the second sheet of dough. Remaining dough as warm gently rolled again between two sheets of paper, put it in the fridge to set before it is used (10th minutes should be sufficient). All the preparation can be done in one time - while bake Both Roll and cut others hold the remaining dough in the refrigerator. It is better to have at least 2 baking trays, otherwise I'll have to wait to cool the cookies. * To obtain good figures shortbread, it must be cold when he goes in the oven, the oven must be heated up already. While not handle a ball or a piece of dough - keep it in the refrigerator. If it seems too tender, can you put in back in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to harden. * The original recipe (and other similar) say candy to put in the bag and crushed with hammer. We tried and the result was flat bag and crumbs on the counter. Not so bad, so we crushed all colors but with mortar should be more comfortable. * Choose candy with saturated color if they are too pale can put a little paint in confectionery * windows * after you fill them with candy. * You can hang the cookies on the Christmas tree or decorate them with ribbon - just before baking drill hole with a toothpick in one part of the cookie. * The finished cookies can doukrasite with frosting of your choice. * In the dough can add cinnamon and / or ginger - more traditional taste, or grated orange or lemon peel - for a fresher taste. * 1 pm. h. = 250 ml

Very beautiful Christmas cookies just for the holidays!

Approximately how many cookies go?

The finished cookies filled a box of 2 liters and such pieces were about 40-50, but this will depend on the thickness of the dough, the size of the baking pans and the size of the windows. According to me got quite a decent amount, expected to be less.

I am delighted with the idea of ​​using candy in this way. Each year in early December, in our home smells of Christmas cookies. We've published my recipe. These days I started with the acquisition of all the spices with the greatest pleasure of sweet half will prepare this technology! Happy chefs roll up sleeves time for Christmas cookies!

terrific offer for the upcoming holidays!

I will try to do with my daughter, who Tuco just saw them and now wants to soil, but I have no desire today, but will make them and put snimki- only will divide testoto- The former will smell of orange peel and cinnamon and the other of dzhindzhifil- hem so beautiful, yet different taste! Will post photos as them thoroughly!

Great sweets. Great recipe idea. I will make them mandatory. All will be very very surprised :) How much time can be saved?

I'm sorry for duplication: (And I saw that writes storing at least one week.

I do not got a lot of saturated colors, but it seems like candy. best get the green onions with a cough. The taste is very pleasant, each candy adds flavor to sweet.

i4eto3421, we left a few sweet sample - in and outside the box to see how much will endure, I'll add it in the recipe is complete experiment :) These shortbread behave much we made Сладка house (video recipe) we stayed for over a month and it's not in the box, comes to an end poizsahna little but eat and it was all delicious. lu4a, very well its colors appear, I'm glad you liked it and I was skeptical, I thought it would be hard windows, but it was very tasty and a good addition to the cookie :)

Yes, thanks for the reply. Lu4a, great sweet. When you are received tasty and useful :)

Still I wondered at the pictures how these beautiful colored windows inside sweet :).

As a lover of chocolate, I decided to add 2ch.l. cocoa and used caramel and fruit candy. Appearance did not work very well, but the taste is great :).

milena1717, very good idea cocoa, I think you are very well received. Puffed are you a little more because the dough was hot down now or oven warmed enough.

easily dealt the second baking pan knack with the filling of a large openI put all candy and a small half, candy them divided on polavini quarters like candy on set knife and tapped the handle of havacheto so I was easy! Mint are downright balm for the stomach, cookies were great!

Here is the promised report on sweet. 1 week after preparation sahryanavanite in a box are almost unchanged, pending a string - poizsahnali, no change in appearance. 2 weeks after preparation in case these are more tvardichki, but still delicious, suspended - also.

Thank you for the report.

not only original but also very tasty. I did some of my window and noticed that when candy (placed in the hole) are less then gets thin layer, which may eat the impression that crunches thin glass. If candy is more, the layer is thicker and crunching harder. The dough is very tasty!

Now I saw this picture, very beautiful workmanship, beautiful photo greeting Renito!

Thank you flowers!
