I feel like my kids’ motto in the kitchen is something to the effect of: throwin’ flour in the air like we just don’t care ???? Making sugar cookies can be a big mess, albeit a fun one. Addy and I cooked up a fun idea the other day, and had a lot of questions about the recipe when we shared on Insta yesterday! Today, I am so excited to share our recipe for Sugar Cookie Sticks with you today!
Remember Dunk-a-Roos?! That was the inspiration behind these sugar cookie sticks!
Sugar Cookie Sticks
What you need:
- 1 package of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1/4 cup of flour
- Powdered Sugar
- Vanilla Extract (I like clear)
What you do:
- Start by letting your dough sit out about 10 mins to get to room temperature, line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper, and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl, mix up the flour and cookie dough (easiest by hand!)
- Transfer the flour/dough mixture onto the cookie sheet with parchment paper on it, and roll the dough out into a rectangle (or as close as you can get it! ????)
- Using a pizza cutter or a knife, “pre-cut” the dough into sticks (see photo below), but do not separate!! Bake them all connected.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 mins. Cool for 2 mins.
- After they have cooled for 2 minutes, re-cut and remove the cookie sticks to a baking sheet to fully cool (about 30 mins).
- Mix up the “icing”. I always start with a cup of powdered sugar, a splash of water, and a splash of vanilla extract. If it’s too runny, I add more powdered sugar. Too thick? More water. I stir well, and add until I get a thick consistency.
- Dip the cooled cookie sticks about an inch into the icing. Then dip into a bowl with sprinkles.
- Let them sit about 30 minutes, to let the icing firm up before eating!
This is a GREAT recipe to make with the 3-5 age group. It’s messy, but a “controlled mess”, and the dipping is a lot more fun (and easier for little hands) than trying to frost the cookies with a knife. Even though my little sous-chef may have been doing more tasting at the end than actual decorating. ????
