butterscotch cookie candles

Have you ever made window cookies with hard candies? I thought it would be fun to do a butterscotch flame version with my tin candle cookie cutter. I rolled out some sugar cookie dough, crushed some butterscotch discs, and whipped up some frosting using powdered sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, butter and milk. Tasty cookies with a bottle of milk.

While I was making them, I thought about a song that my nephew learned in choir that starts out, “light one candle for hope.” My niece, whose name sounds a lot like “candle” thinks the song is about her. What a true thought; we are all capable of being figurative candles for peace, hope and love.
