Kids love these fun cookies no matter what occasion. I have made them for Christmas, summer camp, or for Valentine’s Day with heart shaped suckers.
Any basic sugar cookie dough works, but this is the one that we use. It is my grandmother’s recipe.
1 Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 ½ Cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
Roll the cookie dough into a long log about 1 inch in diameter.
Slice the dough and place the slices on a cookie sheet.
Place a sucker firmly into the cookie dough.
Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes or until the cookies are golden and the suckers are melted.
When you remove the cookies from the tray, you may have to press some of the sticks back down into the suckers, as they may have shifted when baking.
Watch the kids enjoy!
