We made "cookies on a stick" for Ethan's soccer team party! (Picts of the party coming soon.) I wasn't quite sure how to do it so I just pulled out my "craft" popsicle sticks and went for it.
Here's the skinny:
This is the recipe I used. Its the BEST one I've found, its simple, & I love it.
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1 Cup Margarine
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Sour Cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
Cream sugar and margarine together. Add the eggs, sour cream, & vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Add dry ingredients. Refrigerate. (Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't...depends on if I have time. Its easier to roll out if its refrigerated-which reduces the risk of using too much flour to cut out the cookies.) Bake at 350F 10-12 minutes. (Don't over bake!)
*After I cut out the dough with the cookie cutters and just took a little extra dough and attached the popsicle stick.
Here's the frosting recipe I used. I picked this one because I read this great blog that suggested it because it hardens enough not to stick to the clear paper.
