Okay, so I can't seem to get this right. When exactly do you insert the sticks to make cookie pops. I've tried before baking with dough room temp. and before baking with dough chilled. My cookies are still bumpy or cracking! HELP!!!! I want to get this right! icon_confused.gif

If you are having trouble with the sticks being inserted before baking, try inserting them after the cookies have baked. I have done it that way with success. When I put the stick in b4 baking, I just insert it right b4 throwing them in the oven. HTH

I lay the stick on the cookie sheet, place the cookie on top, gently press the dough around the stick, and bake. I've had very good luck with this method.

when I make them I use the thin, flat sticks, and dip them in a little bit of corn syrup before inserting them. Bake on parchment paper so they don't stick. Works with lolli pop sticks to the syrup keeps them from spinning. Also, bake your cookies while cold. This help with spreading and cracking. Hope this helps you.

i made some for the first time this week. i put the stick in before i baked them. i kinda judged where i wanted it and twisted as i put it in. the thicker and colder the dough the easier it will be.

if I have a lot to do I don't put the sticks in when I bake them. They take up too much room and the risk of breaking them is to much (I'm pretty clumsy!)

Since they all get bagged individually anyway I attach the stick to the back of the bag and tie it closed below the cookie. I find it easier, you can't eat the cookie off the stick but most people don't mind.
