On The Good Ship...

We made lollipop birthday cookies for Hannah to share with her classmates! This was one of those projects that evolved as we worked. It was easy peasy!
1. I made a basic sugar cookie recipe.
2. Rolled into balls and slightly flattened them
(they will flatten and spread out even more as they bake.)
3. Stick a Popsicle stick in the middle before you bake.
4. Bake according to recipe. Normally I prefer my cookies very soft and slightly under cooked, but don't do that because the cookie will fall right off the stick before the kid gets one bite taken...unless you LIKE making little kids cry.
5. Allow to cool COMPLETELY.
6. Mix up a batch of "Shiny Cookie Paint" This layer of icing does NOT need to be colored...unless preferred.
Shiny Cookie Paint Recipe
2 Tbsp. Milk
2 Tbsp. Light Corn Syrup
2 Cups Powdered Sugar (Sifted)
Food Coloring
Mix liquid ingredients together in small bowl.
Sift in the sugar.
Add more milk if needed.
This is an icing, not a frosting, so it will be thin and more runny then traditional frosting.
7. Spoon some glaze on each cookie.
It will spread out and level itself. Don't worry about the excess that runs off the cookie...it is easily removed.

8. Allow the white layer to dry completely.

9. To make the color swirls I used a small round cake decorating tip and disposable cake decorating bags. Mix up the Shiny Cookie Paint and add food coloring of your choice. The icing for this step shouldn't be too thin, so that it will hold it's design. Just circle the cookie with the icing. You do not need to wait until completely dry to add the next color swirl.
Before wrapping, allow to dry.

They're wrapped up and ready to send with the birthday girl!


EXTRA TIP:
Another way to use this icing...
Give your kids paint brushes, put the different color icing in muffin tins and let them paint their own cookies!

I am so glad you are back on here! Great, beautiful and fun cookies! I miss brainstorming fun ideas like this with you! I can't stop thinking of all the themed stuff that could come from just one of those cookies!
