Transparent candy-cookies

My daughter saw these type of cookies in the November/December issue of American Girl Magazine. She decided to make heart shapes for her birthday teaparty coming up this weekend. You can use any sugar cookie dough and cookie cutter shapes. You'll need a big shape and a smaller version of the same shape.
1. Make and roll out your dough.
2. Use the larger cookie cutter and cut out the shapes, placing them on a foil lined cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
3. Use the smaller cookie cutter and cut out the center of the dough shapes. You can reroll and reuse this dough or bake these as regular cookies.
4. Bake the cookie cut outs at 350 for 4 minutes and pull out of oven.
5. Fill the cut out with crushed hard candy (unwrapped Jolly Ranchers and a hammer work well- tip: put the unwrapped color sorted candy in small baggies, put those baggies in a big baggie, wrap in towel and hammer on a cutting board.)
6. Put the cut outs back in the oven for 5 minutes.
7. Let cool on cookie sheet for 1/2 hour.
They are really yummy and very pretty!
