Tasty cookies, and fun to decorate... but be aware that they spread out when they bake, they didn't come out as balls, even though I chilled the dough.
Lookie-Lookie Cookie Pops
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3/4 cup oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- candy coating: white, orange and dark chocolate
- small candies, lollipop sticks
- Beat butter and shortening until fluffy; add sugars, beating well. Beat in eggs, oil and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour and remaining ingredients except candy coating, candies and sticks. Cover and chill 2 hours. Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Insert a stick about one inch into each ball. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 11 minutes, until set. Let cool 2 minutes on baking sheets; cool completely on wire racks. Coat with melted candy coating. Decorate with candies. Pipe whiskers with white candy coating.
Here's a quick way to candy coat your cookie pops: Place a cooling rack up high supported between 2 cake mix boxes. Cover with waxed paper. After dipping the cookie pops, poke the stick through the waxed paper on the rack and let cool.
