so that it doesn't look obvious, and they stay on? I've never had this happen before. I bake the sticks with the cookies and generally i never have slippage. i dunno why this is happening now.

I use a little royal icing in the hole to hold it securely. I put my sticks in after I bake and rarely have any come loose.

I cook mine with the sticks in also. I used to have them "spin" on the stick sometimes but I started adding a little cookie dough to the back (over the stick) before I cooked them and that seems to have stopped that. I have heard of using Royal Icing as Yankeegal says or some melted chocolate. Good luck.

I made a 12-cookie arrangement yesterday. I put the stick in before baking. For some reason, after I got the stick in, I pressed down on the cookie where the stick was ... compressing the dough around the stick.

I've had the spinning cookie problem before but every one of these stayed in place great!

Hmm..indydebi I do it that way too. I just put my hand ontop of the cookie, and gently push in the stick, then bake. It's weird, i've never had this problem. The only thing i can think of is i am using the dark chocolate cookie recipe posted here not long ago. Maybe, that's the problem. Never made them on sticks before.
I ended up putting some royal on the ends of the sticks and pushed them in the cookie again. It seemed to solve the spinning problem.
Thanks everyone.

I damped the end of the cookie stick in water before placing in dough.
