Clay and Cookies, Trial Two

Last year, I tried to have my students make cookies that had were ‘inlaid’ with candy. I used Jolly Ranchers, which didn’t work too well, because the cookies were soft, and the candy was HARD.

This year, I tried using decorator sugar. I thought the sugar would melt into little pools of sugary glass, and make the cookies a success.

BEFORE:

AFTER:

They were not a success. The sugar didn’t melt. It didn’t even fuse together. They were just cookies with piles of sugar on them. They still tasted good.

I was talking with the preschool teachers about it, and they said I should use chocolate. What a good idea! It should actually do what I want: fill the cut-out cookie spaces with a solid – but edible- substance.

On a side-note, the kids did take the opportunity to make all seven Dragon Balls, and wished that school would end.

    Hooray for cookie experiments! They look delicious even though the sugar didn’t set. I can’t wait to see what you do next time. I think there are cookie recipes that make a crisp cooki, but I don’t know what those are.

    I have made these cookies with crushed up Lifesavers. They came out like stained glass. Good luck on your next try.
