Cookies on Sticks





Me “ Indigo, do you know who Santa is?”

Indigo “Yes”

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


INGREDIENTS



3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 cups rolled oats
20 sticks
Sprinkles, food coloring

- most any of your favorite cookie could work here~








DIRECTIONS

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
Forgive me.


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!

These are so adorable. I was watching Food Network this weekend and they stood some of these into a flower pot filled with sugar. Such a cute gift.

Cute cookies. Kids say the funniest things! Write them down. It is so fun to go back and read them. I did not write enough down. My daughter use to say 'all white' instead of alright. We still say it, me and my mother, because it brings back such a cute memory.

Deborah said...

A snowman in a bucket - it doesn't get any cuter than that! Except for maybe these cookies - adorable!

Ingrid said...

Yay for food on a stick. LOL, great minds think alike Jennifer! :)

They say the darndest things don't they? Did you ask what made her think Santa was a snowman in a bucket? And who's Frosty? lol
