Stained-Glass Window Rupees
Whaddup nerds! So my first ever themed Dona Bakes was Zelda! These pretty little biscuits are very very easy to make and perfect for a themed party or event. Along with these I made some gorgeous little potion pots that would go perfectly with this recipe. If you'd like, you could poke holes are the top and lace through some ribbon to make gorgeous Christmas tree decorations!
This recipe is actually a major throwback to my first ever YouTube video when I was a lot younger. This recipe is directly from that same video, I'm so happy I get to bring this small portion of my life to the front and really give what my younger would've love to see. Yes, this recipe isn't the most mind-blowing, years of Baking college expertise recipe you'd expect but it really means a lot to me. With these two recipes, I also played a little bit of Ocarina of Time (before it crashed) and some other Zelda games while dressed up as Malon. Watch some of it below!
This recipe is super simple and really fun to make with kids (or nerds) so have make them, have fun and tag me on my socials!! x
Stained Glass Window Rupees
200g Caster Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract
380g Plain Flour
Fox's Glacier Fruits (or any clear fruit hard sweets i.e Jolly Ranchers)
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer and a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar & salt until fully combined.
Mix in each egg well, one at a time and then finally mix in the vanilla.
Lastly mix in the flour until well combined. Bring the dough together and wrap with cling film before chilling for one hour.
While the dough rests, you can prepare the cutters. I made two cutters out of old gingerbread cutters that I just carefully bent and curved with pliers however this method is quite dangerous, instead you can use a foil tray also carefully and use tape to seal together. Here is a template of my cutters and here is a quick tutorial on making your own!!
Now that the dough is chilled, pinout to roughly last than a 1/4 inch thick and cut out however many rupee or heart cookies you would like. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and finally cut out the centres. Place a hard candy in each of the cut-outs and let rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/350°F, bake for 14/15 minutes until the biscuit is lightly golden brown. If you'd like to, you can carefully use a toothpick to poke any large air bubbles.
Let cool completely on the tray before removing as the sugar could still stick to the parchment & enjoy!
