Hey there, bakebakebake!

For Valentine's Day I plan on making some heart-shaped stained glass cookies. And rather than crush up hard candies and put them in the over. I'm following a recipe where you bake the cookies and then pour homemade liquid candy and let it set. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of corn syrup and 1/2 cup of sugar, and then some food coloring. But it doesn't mention flavor. So I'm not sure how much to add to the candy.

I was going to get an all natural like $7 extract of some kind from the local fresh/healthy shop. But I was at a cake supply shop and saw this for $1.50:

So I figured why not try it and see if it's good enough. Lol.

So how much would you all think would be enough to give the cookie's candy center a strawberry flavor w/o being like "ZOMG FAKE! D: "? And I'm going to make a vanilla buttercream to pipe around the cookies, would a drop of this be good? Or overwhelming and clash with the vanilla extract in the frosting?

Thanks in advance! :)
