  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 the stick will not fall out! 100% guarenteed! Read More

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 was missing something. First it wasn't sweet enough for our tastes. It also tasted (not texture texture was ok) a bit doughy. On the up side it was a fun activity to do with the kids.

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. After I halved each color I halved them again and pre-rolled the first 6 balls of each color so I could ensure I'd have enough of each color for each cookie. I at first tried to the first 12 but they started to dry out. Once I got my rope formed I started forming the inside coil. After three loops I took the tail end of the rope and wrapped it around the coil. I found a bag of 100 6" sticks at Michaels and 100 baggies with ties that fit perfectly on the cookie. They also have a ton of different individual colored pastes to choose from. I will definitely be making these again! Read More

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 found if I did most of the prep work to the dough like make all the balls for rolling before chilling the dough it makes it easier because the dough softens quickly which makes it difficult to coil so this way I did a bit at a time and kept the rest in the fridge. Very nice cookie. THX. Read More

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

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 they taste pretty good too. They taste like a sugar cookie. The only thing I would warn you about is that they do take a while to make. You have to take a little dough of each color combine them with the other colors roll out and then coil up. So it does take some time but it is definately worth it! I had a lot of great comments about these. Read More

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 turned out PERFECT! We did sprinkle a bit of sugar on them before baking which made them taste exactly like sugar cookies. Thanks soooo much for the recipe! Read More

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. When I was little I used to make little people and stars and rainbows...whatever my heart desired!:o) Read More

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 - as mentioned before it is more like a spritz cookie than a sugar cookie. But the final result is beautiful especially when sprinkled with a bit of sanding sugar.
