Cookie Pops Recipe

Now, here's one that's been around since grandma's were invented—That great ol’ standby, Holiday Cookie Pops Sugar Cookie. It's a fine recipe I'm sure to turn to when this Christmas holiday is here again because it is one that rolls out easily to make those lovely heart shapes. It's fun to make holiday cookie pops sugar cookies for your special friends.

Preheat your oven to 380 degrees F.

Cookie Pops Recipe Ingredients:

2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Geeze! You're eating a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!)
3/4 cup EACH granulated sugar and firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 - 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or 1 tsp. each cinnamon, ground allspice, and nutmeg
Confectioner's icing directions and recipe follows.
Assorted candy decorations.

Cookie Pops Recipe Directions

In a large bowl and electric mixer, beat shortening, butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy; beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice; gradually add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

While you are waiting, cut cookie patterns from lightweight cardboard, choosing simple holiday shapes and making them 5 to 6 inches wide at the widest point. Also have ready 4 -1/2 to 5 -1/2 inch popsicle sticks or tongue depressors.

Using a floured rolling pin, roll out dough, a portion at a time, on a floured board to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll. Place holiday pattern on dough and cut around edges with a knife. Remove patterns; use a wide spatula to transfer cookies carefully to ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Insert popsicle sticks 1 -1/2 to 2 inches into the base of each.

Bake cookie pops in a 380 degrees oven for 12 to 16 minutes or until very lightly browned. Transfer to racks and let cool completely. Prepare confectioner's icing and spread on cooled cookies; decorate with candies as desired. Let icing dry thoroughly, then wrap cookies individually in plastic wrap. Store in a single layer on a flat surface.

Makes about 1 dozen big cookie pop cookies.

Confectioner's Icing Directions

In a bowl, stir together 2 cups sifted powdered sugar and enough milk (about 3 tablespoons) to make a spreadable icing.
Tint with food color as desired.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
