Smith Brothers Stained Glass Cookies

What you need:
1 cup sugar
2 sticks butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2-3 boxes of Smith Brothers Wild Cherry Cough Drops
1 (2-3 inch) star cookie cutter
1 small triangle cookie cutter

Preheat oven for 350 degrees
In a large bowl cream butter with sugar until smooth, add egg and vanilla.
Mix in flour until well mixed. Press dough into rectangular shape and wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate 1-3 hours.

Section dough into thirds. Roll out one section at a time to about 3/16 inch thickness. Cut out as many large stars as possible. Repeat until all dough is used.
Cut a small triangle out of each of the arms of each star.

Place the cough drops into small plastic bags, place a towel over the bags and crush candy with a mallet.
Place all cookies on parchment lined sheet pans. Fill each triangle in each star with crushed drops.
Bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before removing from sheet.
