To bake these adorable cookie pops, simply roll balls of sugar cookie dough in colored sprinkles and insert a white craft stick before baking. Make a colorful (and edible) centerpiece for the kids' table by filling a container with florist foam, topping it with jelly beans, and then sticking the pops into the foam.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Colored sugars, sparkling sugars, and multicolored jimmies
4" white craft sticks
How to Make It
Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, oil, and vanilla, beating until blended.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, blending well. Cover and chill dough 2 hours or overnight.
Shape dough into 1 1/2" balls. Roll each ball in colored sugar or jimmies in individual bowls, pressing gently, if necessary, to coat balls. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets. Insert craft sticks about 1" into each cookie to resemble a lollipop.
Bake at 350° for 10 to 11 minutes or until set. Let cool 2 minutes on baking sheets; remove cookie pops to wire racks to cool completely.
You'll want to buy several containers of colored sugars and jimmies so you'll have plenty for coating these cookie balls.
I made these for Valentine's Day and they turned out so cute! Me and my sister got really crafty with our decorations. Check out my blog post if you're looking for ideas!
These cookies are great! Made them for a bake sale and used red and green sugar for decoration. Labeled them Christmas Sugar Cookie Pops and they sold like crazy! Everyone wanted to know who made them. Tasted great too. This one is a keeper
Excellent cookies and oh, so easy. I thought, because the dough is very soft, that they would be hard to handle. Not so. These are the easiest sugar cookies I've ever made and have replaced my previous recipe. They can be dressed up with sprinkles or frosting or simply rolled in cinnamon & sugar. Thanks.
Have made these 2 times for 2 of my daughter's birthdays. THey are easy to make with a lot of appeal. I wrapped them in little clear treat bags and put them on display on the table or in the party bag to take home. I also made some royal icing to decorate the cookies with Happy Birthday, hearts, flowers, etc. Very cute!
made these for a birthday party for a five year old girl. the children loved all the different colors and waited several minutes before opening them to eat. I used the recipe as it is.even alot of the parents like them,several moms asked for the recipe for easter cookies for their egg hunt refreshments.
