making cookies on a stick but not sure - Page 3

post #31 of 91
Oh, one more question...do you seal the bags or just tie them shut? I seal mine (around the stick) with an iron on a low setting and then tie them for bouquets. I'm just wondering if it's difficult to seal the bag with the stick already glued/taped on. That looks like it would make it more difficult.

Sallene, folks seem to like the cookie off the stick, but I don't think anyone other than us give it that much thought. I tie the ribbon around the bag and stick, they stay fresh. I put the cookie in the bag, lay the bag/stick/cookie face up and take a ribbon and tie it around the bag and stick both, keeping the cookie snug in the bag so it doesn't move in the bag. Does that make sense?

Yeah, I don't think any of the adults would care, but I know the kids love the stick cookies.

Yep, perfect sense on the ribbon. I just like to seal mine as well, just to give an extra level of freshness, and was wondering if you did anything besides the ribbon. I don't think it would be too hard to seal them around the stick (even if it's on the outside of the bag) since I already seal them with the stick in the bag.

Thanks!

I was so excited when I tried Shiney's method and saw how wonderful the results were. Depending on the cookies, I either hot glue & Tape or just tape. I haven't tried attaching the sticks to the bags first, what works well for me is to put all of my cookies into bags, tie the bottoms with a riboon, leave it loose, attach the sticks and tie the ribbon around the stick and back around the front.

I am forever grateful to Shiney for such an awesome idea, that has made cookie bouquets a part of my arsenal again, I seriously avoided them like mad, now I look for chances to make them thumbs_up.gif Also all of the kids love them this way, they are happy getting them on the stick and have yet to complain when the baggy gets opened and they get the stick-less cookie icon_smile.gif

Thank you Shiney!! Andrea

Hey, you're welcome! I do all my bags the same, I sit down and do several at a time, on two different lengths of sticks, then they are ready whenever I need them. Andrea, I have tried just the glue, it's not enough, I suppose just to be safe I use both, I don't want either losing their grip whilst sitting on someone's desk icon_wink.gif. A couple years ago I got some from a national type company (not CBD), and they were hotglued only to the bag, and they started falling off.
Does anyone know if I can cut and paste these instructions into the instructions section?

OH!! Somehow, i missed that post. Ok, i got it. I'm assuming you leave the open end of the bag on the bottom, slip the cookie all the way up, and then tie the bag at the bottom of the cookie. And you said that you never had any problems with the cookies slipping cuz you tie the ribbon tightly.
One more question. How do you hide the sticks showing from the back of the arrangement? I've tried tissue paper but if the cookies are at different lengths and angles, you can still see the sticks. Or does that even matter?
Thank you soooo much for your advice!!!!

You know, tissue around is a good thing, even cutting them into fourths, take the middle of that and hotgluing them in, it can be a good filler. I'm too lazy, I take a sheet of tissue, put the foam in the middle of it and slip the foam into the container, then bring up the ends of the tissue and hold it in by sticking the stick through, that covers up the foam, and also leaves some for filler. if I need more filler, I do the fourths of the tissue. Make sense?

Wow, as always, I learned something on CC!!!! I've been dying to try a cookie bouquet, but have been intimidated. Thanks for sharing the trick!

I bake them, double thickness of the stick. Just after baking I put the stick in the cookie. Works perfectly.

I'd read thru here once before and just skimmed thru this time. I know I saw mention of the hot glue melting the bad...I'm guessing it's a low temp hot glue gun? I too would think that the high temp would melt.

I saw someone on here (sorry can't remember who) that said they turn the cookie over and put a little left over dough over the stick as opposed to sticking the stick IN the cookie. I LOVE this method! I have been doing that as I would get raised spots on my cookies where I Put the stick, or they'd be too flimsy. So now, I cut the chilled dough, carefully turn it over and put the stick on back and push down just slightly and then put a small ball of cookie dough that I smash down around the stick (I usually put the stick up half way). When it bakes you can't tell that you did that and it hasn't changed the shape of my cookie at all. icon_smile.gif

Just an alternative...

I use the clear heavy packing tape to attach sticks to candy bars and arrange in container for a candy bouquet. Sometimes I can get candy bars here for .25 each and i use them as fillers for a cookie bouquet. The mini candy bars work well for this, too.

I've also used the tape to attach 4 flat bars (like Hershey's) together. I put floral foam inside and arrange the candy inside the candy bar "container". Cute...and easy.
