Directions

Cookies
  • In a medium bowl,
    whisk flour, baking powder
    and salt. In a large bowl, beat
    butter, crushed candies and
    sugar until blended. Beat in
    egg. On low speed, beat in
    flour mixture. Gather dough
    with your hands and divide in
    half. Flatten each half into a
    disk and wrap in plastic.
    Refrigerate overnight.

  • Heat oven to 350°. Let dough
    stand 10 minutes at room
    temperature. Line 2 baking
    sheets with parchment paper.
    On a floured surface, roll out
    one disk to 1/8- to 1/4-inch
    thickness. Cut out mittens with
    cookie cutter. Transfer to prepared sheets. Re-roll scraps,
    cutting as many mittens as
    possible. Bake at 350° for 11
    minutes. Transfer to a wire rack
    to cool; repeat with all dough.

Frosting
  • In a bowl, combine
    confectioners' sugar and water.
    Beat until smooth. If desired,
    transfer 1/4 cup of the frosting
    into each of 2 bowls. Tint to
    desired colors.

  • Spread a scant 2 tsp frosting
    onto each cookie. Top with
    sparkling sugar or nonpareils,
    or decorate with colored
    frosting. Let dry completely
    before stacking cookies.
