When you are making cookie bokays how do you attach the stick. Do you bake it into the cookie or attach it with icing or something. I have tried before to bake it in but it doesn't seem strong enogh to hold it with out breaking the cookie. Any tips please!!

I roll my cookies VERY thick and bake them as usual. I put the sticks in them after baking.

HTH!

I have made these too and put my sticks in before baking - not too pleased with the outcome... I should try after baking.

What is the best cookie recipe for this? I used sugar and was not too happy...

I use Martha's sugar cookie recipe exclusively. It's the best tasting I have ever had.

I used the no-fail sugar cookies recipe on CC and had great results.....I rolled on wax paper like the recipe suggests and put my lollipop sticks in prior to baking.....then put the cookie sheet in the freezer for about ten min. then put in the oven......(I heard it helps the cookies keep their shape better)......mine were stuck in the cookies like nobody's business.....even when eating some of the cookies.....I had to literally eat the chunks of cookie off of the sticks...they were in there good, I had no problems.......here are the ones I did.

When I bake my cookie I insert the sticks before I bake. I know quite a few people insert it after but I am too scared of breaking my cookies. Others will use chocolate to attach them to the sticks but I avoid doing that because it's just an additional expense. Less profit.

I roll my cookies out between two sheets of waxpaper using my Wide Glide Rolling pin. I place cookie pop sticks around the edges so my dough is never thinner than their diameter. Because the dough i use tends to be a bit soft I freeze it a but then push The sticks in and I flip them over To see if it's pierced the back side of The cookie. If ity has i take extra dough and just patch the back and turn it over on the the parchment lined Cookie sheet. Then I put Them back in The freezer so they are nice And firm then straight in to the over. This will help to reduce spreading significantly.

I add the stick the moment I take them out of the oven when they are still semi-soft. I tried baking the sticks with the cookies but found the stick falls threw and the cookie won't bake around them. The moment out of the oven I know it will be centered. If they feel loose after they cool I use white Kayro syrup for glue. Kayro syrup isn't that expensive and won't bite into your cost.

I don't have hardly any breakage when I incert the stick at that time. I only break when I get into a hurry and lift the cookie when it's still warm.

So, Maybe the trick to inserting them before baking is the freezing part??? Maybe because it's semi frozen the outside of the cookie forms a crust keeping the stick from falling to the bottom while the center sets up??

never froze mine... didn't have time. It might work. But I myself feel more confident in after baking but that is just me.

Thought I would give you all the dumb question of the day on this subject... are the lollipop sticks wooden or paper?

I bake mine with the sticks in them. I can't imagine that I'd be able to get more than just a couple sticks in fresh-from-the-oven cookies before they cooled too much to get them in, LOL!

I haven't been doing cookies too long, but have never had a problem with the stick being loose in the cookies by doing it this way.

I don't put them in the freezer, although I do try to work quickly so the dough doesn't get too warm. I roll the dough between sheets of parchment (no fail sugar cookies), then refrigerate for a while. When I cut the cookies out, I do them one at a time: cut the cookie, insert the stick, then put it on my parchment lined cookie sheet and don't move it again before putting in the oven. To insert the stick, I put the cookie near the edge of a cutting board, then put my left hand on top of the cookie dough. I use my right hand to put the stick in, twisting it slightly, and my left hand keeps the dough from bunching up as the stick goes through the dough.

I have several cookie bouquets in my photos, they were all done this way.

Laura.
