Hi, I bake my cookies with the stick, and no they don't burn. They are the Wilton sticks that I find at Michaels. I cut my cookie somewhat thick and I carefully insert the stick in a turning motion trying not to disturb the shape. Another option is to use shiskabob sticks, although I don't feel comfortable using those --because of the sharp tip-- if I'm making the cookies for kids.

Ok, good luck!

i bake my cookies and then remove them from the pan right away. Then i push a stick in while it's still hot, it has to be done while it's hot or the stick will break the cookie.

Others use melted chocolate and put it on after it's cooled, others as the pp put it in before it's baked. There is no right or wrong way, just what works for you.

I like to do it after so i can bake more cookies at one time, the sticks just take up to much room on my baking sheet.

I agree with you Leily, but I have a hard time putting the stick after...the cookies either break oh I mess up the shape icon_cry.gif I guess I'll have to try again icon_smile.gif

I find that if i twist while i push in i dont' have issues with breakage.
