Cookieman: Did you happen to catch the Unwrapped show Sunday on the FoodNetwork? They did a piece on "Cookiesbydesign", but they didn't show how the sticks were attached. How do you attach sticks to your cookies?
I know i'm not Cookieman but when I do cookies on a stick I insert the stick into the dough before baking the cookie. If there's another way I'd like to know ~ sticks take up a lot of room on the cookie sheet...
I've seen some cookies (in gourmet shops) attached with royal or at least something that resembles royal.
I have made the cookies but have done them using the wilton cookie treat pans. The sticks go in before baking and wilton sells some great cookie sticks too. They are sturdy and have a blunt point on one end. Good luck!
I just use candy melts! Put some of the wafers in a disposable decorator bag, melt and snip off the end of the bag and squeeze it onto the back of the cookie once it has cooled and roll the end of the lolipop stick in that! Hold it in place until the candy has hardened!
I use the Wilton pans myself. I know they are limited in shapes, but my imagination isn't! I never tried hassling with attaching the sticks to my regular cut outs. I might have to try that one day.
By the way, the Wilton cookie pop pans are one of the handful of Wilton products I truly love.
Hey, thanks for the responses. Wilton pans, guess I haven't looked very closely yet at those but will do so now! Thanks all
When my son & I did cookie pops for Valentines Day we cut out hearts from rolled chocolate chip cookie dough, using the mini chips. We soaked popsicle sticks (or craft sticks) in a bowl of water for about an hour prior to baking, put an unbaked cut out on the cookie sheet, put a stick down, then covered it with another cut out. We had nice thick cookies and the sticks did just fine. I imagine if you are using drop cookie dough you could just slide the stick into the dough. I am not sure if this is the right way to do this, but it worked for me.
hi, when we do cookie pop's we always just ball the dough around the stick then "smush" it out alittle bit before it goes into the oven. for my daughters b-day we made them but put a mini candy bar (like the bit size snickers) on the stick then put the cookie dough around it... she was the coolest that day, no one else had brought those in before
