You put it in before baking....then be sure to let the cookie cool some before removing from the pan...then carefully remove to a cooling rack using a metal spatula...and never handle the cookies by the stick until they are completely and 100% cooled, several hours.

Good luck!

I have a friend who used to own a cookies by design store. She says to put the sticks in before they are baked. She used shorter sticks to bake the cookies on and then replaced with precut longer ones. She also sharpened and greased the sticks. Their cookies were about 1/4 of an inch thick. I hope this helps.

I insert mine right after they come out of the oven (i like that I can fit more cookies on the cookie sheet this way)

Then as the cookie cools it "shrinks" up around the stick (I use bamboo skewers) and I have never had a problem with one loosening up or falling off (unless someone is playing with it.

Are the bamboo sticks sturdy enough to hold the cookie? Do you use 2 per cookie?

I only use one per cookie. You can take a look in my photos and see. And I use the large 4"-5" comfort grip size cookie cutters for boquets. I buy the pkg of 100 at wal-mart (in their cooking utensil isle)
