Church Window Cookies | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on September 21, 2011

Church Windows Cookies are a pretty nifty way to celebrate the great wonders of stained glass found in houses of worship, and public buildings around the world. For me, there has always been a certain fascination with the stories told in each of these unique creations. This recipe was given to my Mom, Dorothy, by her long time friend Mrs Vivien Wright. It is a great recipe for teaching cooking principles to young children as well as a pleasing to the eye treat. Do Enjoy!

1 Pkg (12 oz) Chocolate Chips

1 Cup nuts, finely chopped

¼ Lb Butter

1 pkg (10 ½ oz) Miniature colored Marshmallows, cut into quarters and halves

Shredded Coconut (approx 4-6 oz)

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, melt the Chocolate Chips, and butter, allow to cool
  2. Add the Marshmallows and Nuts to the Chocolate Mixture, form into a log, and roll in the Coconut. Wrap in wax paper.
  3. Store in Refrigerator, Cut into slices when ready to serve.

Yield approx 24 slices depending on thickness.

Michigan State Univ Museum Stained Glass Census

Michigan's cultural heritage. They maintain a computerized archive to preserve an invaluable Stain Glass Windows have always held a fascination for me, The very rich colors, especially the bright reds, and blues, have hold my attention still whenever I see one. MichiganStateUniversity has been documenting the Stained Glass widows throughout Michigan since 1992. AS they state in their Website it is an ongoing project that focuses attention on a long-neglected portion of resource of visual and documentary material related to Michigan's social, religious, and art history.
