I roll them to the thickness of a wooden spoon handle (lay 2 wooden spoons on each side of the dough .... roll the rolling pin over the wooden spoons ... perfect thickness every time. I insert the sticks into the dough before baking.

I always eyeball mine but they are usually about 1/2 inch thick or a tiny bit more.

I roll mine between two pieces of parchment set over two 1/4" strips of wood. (I like a thinner cookie). If the cookie stick moves or falls out, dip the end in a tiny bit of light corn syrup and carefully replace it. I imagine you could also use a bit of icing, but I like the fact that light corn syrup is clear, so it's less noticeable.
