Halloween Lollipop Cookies

by Michelle on October 13, 2009

A year or so ago I set out to test sugar cookie recipes. I probably made six or seven different recipes. Some were good and some were not to be made again! But I found the most wonderful Sugar Cookie Recipe. Shhhhh…don’t tell but it has now replaced my Mom’s recipe which was my favorite for years. And the Lollipop Cookies seem to be a big favorite from my kitchen!

During our construction, even though my kitchen was completed, I still had crews of men working on my house. And when I would bake I would offer some of the goodies to my guys. Being I have hundreds of sprinkles for every holiday imaginable, I bake the Lollipop Cookies quite often and decorate accordingly. It was so funny looking outside only to see all my tough guys walking around eating the Lollipop Cookies. I think they enjoyed eating the cookies on a stick!

Last year my youngest niece, Julia, sent me the Flat Stanley letter and I sent back a box of goodies from IL and Halloween Lollipop Cookies for her class. One little boy wanted another cookie and my niece told him if he wrote me a nice letter, I would send him a box of cookies. Isn’t that cute! Actually Julia is correct, I would have sent the cookies to the little boy but it is funny that she so casually volunteered me! LOL!! The innocence of children is just so darn sweet!

Halloween Lollipop Cookies
Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Colored sanding sugar or sprinkles (preferably Halloween theme)
24 wooden ice-pop sticks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until combined. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix).

Prep all your confections into small prep bowls and line them up within easy reach.

Roll dough into balls, using 1 1/2 tablespoons for each.

Roll in confections, pressing lightly to coat completely. Insert a wooden stick in center of each ball.

Place on baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart, with wooden sticks lying horizontally. Lightly press down on each ball with the bottom of a glass to flatten slightly.

Bake until edges are just golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer cookies immediately to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Michelle, those look soooo good. I have never made Lollipop cookies but I have seen them before. I actually have all of those ingredients and I think I will make up a batch for Halloween. I know my son will love me for doing it. I just need to buy some sticks, I already have the Halloween sprinkles. Thanks for the idea. Hope you have a wonderful day.

    If only I were sent cookies every time I mailed a bill…

    Your lollipop cookies are very cute!

    Great blog! I LOVE your background pic- how adorable!

  • Elle October 13, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    First of all, I have to address the pic of the dogs. Oh my gosh, they look hilarious! I LOVE the photo.

    Second–the cookies–how fun are they? My kids would really love these. And I *seriously* need to invest in some cool sprinkles. They’re so expensive in the craft stores around here. (Michael’s, I’m looking at you!) Need to find a good online supplier, maybe.

  • YankeeQuilter October 13, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    I think I will make these for our quilt show this weekend…very fun!

  • Kate October 13, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    What a cute idea! I can just see these burly guys walking around with a lollipop cookie!

    Funny how we tend to collect sprinkles, isn’t it?

  • Lisa October 13, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    These look like a lot of fun!

  • Christi @ A Southern Life October 13, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    I’ve never had a cookie on a stick. Sounds like a wonderfully fun way to eat a delicious cookie.

    The picture of the dogs in your header is hysterical! What well behaved dogs to pose like that 😀 These cookies are so cute! I have all the ingredients, I am going to try to fit them in before Halloween. Like you I have about 5 containers of Halloween sprinkles!

    Love the lollipop cookies… they look delicious. Plus, the dressed up doggies in your header picture are absolutely adorable. I saw a cute jack-o-lantern hat that I want to buy for my yellow lab, but I don’t think she’d put up with it!

    This is a wonderful recipe! For someone with food allergies, Halloween candy is a no-no… but these… are just like “candy” that you can make yourself and know what’s in them!! Thank you.
