Flatten each slice until it measures about 2 inches in diameter. Sprinkle slices with sanding sugar; place 1 piece of gelt on center of each slice.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown (gelt may be slightly melted but should hold its shape). Cool 5 to 10 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Expert Tips

  • You can find sanding sugar in the baking aisle at most craft stores. If you can’t find it, use your favorite blue or yellow sprinkles.
