Eggless Stained Glass Cookies–Eggless Cookies

Look at them and just stare... That is my one liner for this very adorable looking cookie.. I bookmarked this cookie here immediately when I saw it.. The original recipe had 1 egg and I have used the egg replacer here. They have a good shelf life of around a week to 10 days if stored in the fridge. I also saw some YouTube videos for the method of making it... But again took everything and did my own!!! This one is a sinfully delicious one and you cannot stop with a few!!! very addictive!! With December close and the baking season has kick started with full swing.. Enjoy this delicious cookies - it is fun both making them and sharing them.. They also make great edible gifts!!! I am back to BM after a long time and feels good to join back...
All purpose flour / Maida  - 3 1/2 cups
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Butter - 1 1/2 cups
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Egg Replacer - 1/2 table spoon
Warm Water - 2 table spoons
Milk - 2 tablespoons
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon
Transparent sugar candies - 10 - 20 (I used fox candies)
Salt - 1/8 tea spoon

Sieve together all purpose flour, salt and baking powder and keep it aside.
Whisk together egg replacer with warm water until soft peaks form and set aside
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg replacer solution, vanilla essence and milk to it and beat well. Finally add dry mixture and mix well until it rolls into a soft dough.
Take 1/3 portion of the dough and roll the dough into 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shape. Make a smaller hole in the center using similar shaped cutter or a round up.
Line the baking tray with Aluminum foil and place the cookies on the lined baking tray.
Crush the candies using a rolling pin or run them in the coffee grinder for 2 - 5 seconds. Fill the cookie center hole with the broken pieces of candy.
Preheat oven to 180°C and bake for 10-15 minutes. Mine was done in 13 minutes. When you are removing from the oven, it will be bubbly in the center and the cookie will be lightly golden
Allow it to cool down for a while and slowly remove from the aluminum foil.
Enjoy looking through the cookies ;)
This quantity yields about 80 - 100 cookies depending on the size.
Points to note
Do not bake them in parchment paper, use aluminum foil only. I tried to use parchment paper and the cookies got stuck in it and was hard to get them out. But with aluminum foil, it was super easy
I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and a small round cutter (back of the icing nozzle) to shape the cookie
You do not have to completely crush the candies. You can break the candy into big pieces and keep the piece as is and it will melt.
Make sure that the candy is inside the hole only and not on the cookie
