Cookies on a stick....

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I know this is probably a no-brainer...lol...but since I've never done it before, I thought I'd ask how to first! icon_rolleyes.gif I'm going to do some cookie bouquets for Valentine's day...but don't know how to get the cookie on the stick... icon_redface.gif Do you put the stick into the dough after you've cut it out & placed it on your sheet pan? Or do you insert the stick after it's baked?

I was also wondering ... how big is too big for a cookie on a stick? Will a 3 or 4 inch cookie be ok or too big? They're going to be inserted into styrofoam which will be inside baskets, pots, etc.

Any advice is appreciated!! TIA icon_smile.gif

Hello, JennT! You need to insert the sticks into the dough after you cut them out & placed them on your sheet pan. And the size depends on the length of the sticks. Sorry, I can't help you with that one! icon_redface.gif
Bye!

I generally use the short Wilton cookies sticks. The stick is inserted about half way in to The cookie and a little less. My cookies are about 4 inches.

Take a look in album and you will see the sunflower and rosebud cookies.

I insert my cookie sticks before I bake them. I personally don't want to risk having my cookies break after baking while trying to insert the sticks, burn my hands, or end up with deformed cookies. Plus I dont see The point of having the extra step of having to melt chocolate To attach The sticks when the sticks can be baked in to the cookie. But that's just my way of thinking. Do what ever makes it easier for you.

Thanks, CakePrincess! So the sticks don't burn, right? Do I have to soak them in water or something beforehand?

I was thinking about this too. Are these special sticks we need to use?

I saw in "Sweet Dreams" how the hostess was making poinsetta cookies and she stuck the sticks in the cookie though and then wrapped them up to look like poinsettas.

Now, she didn't say you had to use special sticks, so I wonder.... icon_cool.gif

Just use the cookie sticks. You don't have to soak them or do anything special.

icon_smile.gif I've made really huge very thick sugar cookies on a stick and I used dowels...then in a styrofoam inside a flower pot.

when I make Cheesecake on a stick, I used the white ones, same one for chocolate.

For sugar cookies (cut outs) I inserted the bigger cookie stick before baking...doesn't burn or anything like that.

I did make mini chocolate chip cookies and that time I inserted the stick immediately after baking and then let it set. That seemed to work very well. My choc chip cookies are VERY soft after baking (I like mine really soft and chewy) and so since they rise so much I was afraid the stick would move during baking. Afterwards worked just fine.

Just remember to never handle the stick at all until the cookies are cooled. And parchment paper works great to make sure the cookies are easy to remove and put on a baking rack without hurting the sticks.

No just insert them in the dough. Paper burns at 451 F. So you would have To pretty much stick them on the electric element or in the fire before they will start to burn.

Sorry, I just log in or else I would have answered sooner

Cheese cake on a stick. There is a company that makes them. Here is the basic idea.

Make your cheese cake and let it cool. Cut in to wedges. Insert popsicle sticks in the fat end of the wedge. Then you can dip the entire thing in chocolate and add sprinkles or what every you like.


Oh I just found the company that makes Cheesecake on a stick. Here is the website

JennT,

I just made cookie boquets for Christmas gifts. I too put the cookie sticks in before baking. Some of the cookies I made were pretty large and they did just fine.

I even carried them on a plane (with a transfer) in a carry on and all got there safe and sound. All the way from Nashville to Denver icon_eek.gif

The cookie sticks I bought from a neighborhood cake decorating store. Of course I used the No-Fail receipe here on cc.

I did try another receipe for "cut out" cookies that is made with sweetned condensed milk. This was the easiest dough to roll and cut and it didn't spread when baked. I am going to make my Valentine's cookie boquets out of that dough and will post pictures. More compliments on the cut out cookie receipe than the no-fail.

Also, the popsicle sticks or craft sticks don't burn either.
