Recipe: Sugar Cookie Pops


This weekend I pulled out a probably year old ball of sugar cookie dough from the freezer (don’t tell the musicmaker it was that old). But I had forgotten how much I love this recipe so I wanted to share. Also I did something fun with two of them and the girls got a real kick out of them.

It’s so simple just lay a small lollipop (like dum dums or mini charms) on the dough after you pick the shape and bake like normal. I think this would be fantastic neighbor gifts or even for a girl’s birthday party with flowers but I did snowflakes for Christmas.

I didn’t frost the pop ones because I was short on powdered sugar and well the nieces are dirty messy little girls and I didn’t want to deal but I do love the frosting so if I did it again I’d  frost those too.

On a side note T was convinced it was a lollipop and insisted on licking the cookie, gross I know. I kept telling her it was a cookie. Finally after L had devoured hers I pointed out to T that she could just eat the cookie part and start licking once she got to the candy like L did. Thank goodness or else she may still be licking that stupid cookie.

Cookies:
1 1/2 cups powdered shugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Mix flour, baking soda and cream of tartar in a small mixing bow. Cream sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract together. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Divide dough into two balls; refigerate at least 2-3 hours. Roll out dough and cut in desired shapes. Bake at 375 F for 7-8 minutes.

Frosting:
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c butter

Beat all ingredients (add a couple drops of water to thin). Divide and color with food coloring if you want I just did white this year.
