  1. In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Tint each with a different food color. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue and 1 orange ball together to make 1 large ball. Shape into a 12 inch long roll (like a snake), starting at one end, coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie. Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Carefully insert lollipop sticks into bottoms of cookies.
  4. Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Very nice recipe. In our bakery, with any cookies (as this one) that we bake on a stick, we always dip the stick into liquid egg whites before sticking that portion into the cookie. This way, t...

I don't like giving unfavorable reviews, but I have to say, this one just didn't do it taste-wise for us. They were really fun to make, and the kids really enjoyed shaping them. But the flavor w...

These are so cute! I really thought I was playing with Play Dough. I really recommend using the paste that the recipe calls for so you get the deep color without using a ton of food coloring. ...

These are really good. It's the same recipe as "The Fun Cookie Suckers" from this site. It's very time consuming but well worth the effort as they truly are pretty and kids love them. I foun...

These are very cool and creative. They are also super easy if you use store-bought sugar cookie dough.

These cookies are so neat to look at. I made them without putting the stick in. The first comment I got was "Wow, those look like Play Doh!" Everyone thought these were really fun cookies and th...

Yummy and fun! So easy for the kids. It's hard to find a project that a 7 year old and a 3 year old can both do together and enjoy. This would be it:) We followed the recipe EXACTLY and turne...

Another way to do these cookies is to let your kids mold them with cookie cutters or just their hands to make them whatever they want to be...this would be in place of the swirls on sticks. Whe...

This recipe was a real hit at my son's nursery school. The cookies are colorful and fun to make. I made the balls first and then chilled them and only used 3 colors. I don't find them very tasty...
