I'm pretty sure there is a topic out there like this but there are so many to look through that I couldn't find what I was looking for. I want to do a cookie bouquet but I was wondering when and how do I stick the cookie stick onto the cookie:
Before the cookie is baked?
On top of the cookie before its baked?
Place the stick on the cookie sheet and then the unbaked cookie on top?
After the cookie is baked?
I hope I make sense. I saw someone post here that after the cookie is baked, sometimes the stick comes out and they put a little RI and stick the stick back in the hole. I also saw someone else glue the stick on the outside of bag.
I just want to know what would be the best way for 1st timer like me to do a cookie bouquest. I appreciate your help in advance.
We all do it differently. Its one of those things that you have to try and see what works best for you. I "glue" them onto the back of the cookie with Royal Icing. But all of the ways you mentioned are used by CCers.
Thanks. I appreciate your help.
I am one that likes to put the stick in a minute or two after they are out of the oven. This allows me to cook more cookies at once and then as the cookie cools it shrinks around the stick and I don't have any problems with them moving.
I always lay the stick on the cookie sheet, place the cut-out on top, then gently press the dough around the stick. Bake. I've never had one come off....yet.
I attach the lollipop stick after it is baked with melted chocolate. It stays WAY better than baking the stick into the cookie IMHO.
