Yes, I use NFSC for all mine. I usually roll my cookies about 3/8" inch thick. Depending on the size of the cookie, they usually take about 13-15min to bake in my oven.

I use the same thickness as usuall.. And I put the stick in when they come out of the oven.. and then I flattened them with the back of a spoon.

I don't put the stick in the cookie at all, I put it on the bag, using Shiney's method. Put a little hot glue on the stick, put the stick on the bag, and for extra hold, use a piece of clear packing tape over the glued stick. When you get your cookies decorated, place in the bag and tie with a pretty ribbon. Just wanted to give you another option.

When you are looking at the cookie from the front, there is very little difference than if the stick was in the cookie, especially if the cookie is in a bouquet.

I like them lots better if kids are involved because you can give them the cookie and keep the stick, no more little kids running around eating a cookie off of a stick.

I used to use royal icing to "glue" the stick to the cookie, but really did not like that look and also the hard icing you had to eat around.

The white chocolate method is good if you live somewhere cool or they are staying in a/c, but here in FL, the chocolate melts in the heat. Ask me how I know icon_cry.gif

kneadacookie is correct, if you don't put the stick in the cookie, the cookies are so much easier to bake and decorate

Here is a pic of a bouquet that has the sticks attached to the bags.

I've done tons of cookies and place the stick in after they bake and I rarely ever have a problem with breakage, or decorating.

So, I guess it's just a matter of preference.

The stick on the bag option opens up all sorts of possibilities. Father's Day found me 4 hours from my kitchen, busy getting my Mom moved into a retirement community, fitting in a visit to my Dad who is in rehab at another facility. Put some store-bought sugar-free cookies in the bags with sticks, added some bright stickers to the bags, some tissue and ribbons, and came up with a happy boquet. It wasn't the home-made treat I had planned, but it still was good for a smile or two.

when I do cookies on sticks, I put the stick in before baking. I use the NFSC recipe and roll them thicker than I normally do, to give the stick more room.

here are some past threads about cookies on sticks with helpful info...
