Cookies on Sticks
Me “ Indigo, do you know who Santa is?”
Me “ Ok, who is Santa?”
Indigo “He’s a snowman!”
Me “A Snowman?”
Indigo “Yes, a snowman who rides in a bucket”
*Swoon* Geesh I love her…can we add one more day to the weekend?
These little chaps are darn cute!
There is one time when having a stick up your butt is actually preferable, and that would be if you are a cookie…cake ball..hotdog…and in this instance we are golden.
I bet almost all cookies could work in this instance – I delightfully borrowed this recipe and idea from AllRecipes.com
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 cups rolled oats
Sprinkles, food coloring
- most any of your favorite cookie could work here~
In a large bowl, cream together white sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and butter. Add vanilla and eggs; mix well. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Finally, mix in rolled oats. You can add in food coloring here…if yah please. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
Pre-heat your oven to 350
Now take your dough and roll it into 2 inch balls..big balls if you please
Put a stick through the ball..giggle…and place on parchment lined pan. These cookies will spread, there is no need to press the balls down..I added sprinkles toward the end. Bake for 8-12 minutes…remove & cool
Add a bow and your golden.
I will be submitting these for the Kitchen Corners Cook Off/December = COOKIES
These cookies were donated to all my husbands co-workers, just imagine all these adult men eating cookies on a stick!
