Instructions Checklist
  • To hard cook the egg yolks, separate eggs, and slip the yolks into enough hot water to cover them. Cook just below the boiling point until firm, about 5 to 8 minutes.

  • In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, mashed yolks and orange zest. Stir in the flour and salt until well blended, then stir in the candied fruit and cherries. Divide dough in half and shape into rolls 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap in foil or plastic and chill for at least 2 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.

  • Unwrap rolls of dough and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on the prepared cookies sheets.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be set, but not browned. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

I made these this year for Christmas. They are quite good---not too sweet--perfect with tea and coffee. I was under the assumption they would turn out looking like Cathedral windows but they didn't at all. They are just a small round yellowish cookie with bits of fruit and don't look like stained glass or anything. Too bad---that is the main reason I made them. And although they taste good they were not gobbled up by the family like most Christmas baking. It is January 3rd and I still have lots of them left. Read More
