When I bake my cookies, I put a bit of dough on the back to cover the stick, this way the stick will nicely bake to the cookie. I bake and decorate cookies day before event. You need some time to let them dry.

I just made a batch last night and they are for this weekend. I just stick the stick in and press the dough around it. Although I this is my first time making cookies on a stick too.
Good luck!!!! thumbs_up.gif

i've done cookies on a stick and i slowly push while twisting the stick into the dough (i roll it a bit thicker) if any break through you can cover with a bit of dough. i like to make mine a couple days in advanced (depending on the design of the cookie and how long you'll need them to dry before packaging) hope that helps!

I done it both ways, the twist method and the dough on the back. I prefer the twist method. I just make my cookie a little thicker and hold my hand on the top of the cookie while pushing the stick into the cookie. I have also read on this site where some bakers insert the stick into the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. I've not tried this method and I think while it may sound easy it's the trickiest.

I've also inserted the stick before baking but never liked the valley that forms around the stick when baking.

I glue my stick on with RI. I take 3 days for my cookies. Day 1 - make dough and bake cookies. Day 2 - Put sticks on and after several hours, put fondant on. Day 3 - early - decorate with RI. In afternoon cookies are ready for pickup

When i took a class a couple of years ago, that's how we were taught but when i tried it, by the time the cookies were dry, they were also stale.
But i see that you use fondant toleshed, that would make a huge difference cuz i used RI and needed another 24 hours for it to dry before decorating.
The next time i want to make a bouquet, i'll definately try your suggestion. Thanks!!

Here's a link to a great thread where we discussed Shineys method, it works like a charm and I never ever avoid cookies "on a stick" since I started doing them this way! HTH thumbs_up.gif

That's what i've been doing too. The only drawback is that it doesn't look too good from the back of the arrangement so you have to cover that with tissue paper.
