Cookies on a Stick: CHECK!

We get to cross our 1st thing off of our summer "live" list!


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
2 eggs
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.

These are adorable!!! They look so yummy too. How did you attach the soccer ball picture? What did you use? Where did you get the pic? Super cute!

Emily said...

The soccer ball picture was just clip art...you can copy and paste a picture in Word if you don't have Photoshop. Just be sure to print it out on "sticker" or label paper to attach it to the cookies. And there you go!

I love this party!! Fun! Great ideas. I think you have the same Sour Cream Cookie Recipe that has been in my family forever! :) I normally use a cream cheese frosting with it, but I might try yours to see how that is too. :)
Thanks for sharing.
