I’m back! – and very excited to be cooking again in my own kitchen – thankfully, I have a few recipes on file…here’s one of them.
I got this idea and recipe from Everyday Food and they were a hit with the kids. The recipe says to roll the cookies in sprinkles, so I did that for one side and then attempted to make a face on the other with Smarties. For the end result, I’d have to say, skip the sprinkles and make some sort of design on the top side using Smarties or any other non-dissolving candy.
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 large egg
2 t. vanilla
In an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture is fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Next combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl;
2 3/4 c. flour (spooned and leveled)
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. EACH baking powder AND salt
Add the flour mixture and stir just until combined.
Roll the dough into balls – about golf ball size – insert a popsicle stick and place the ‘lollipop’ on a cookie sheet covered with parchment. Gently flatten each ball with the back of a cup and then add the ‘face’ or any other decorations to the cookie.
Bake at 350 for about 18 minutes – but check them at the 15 minute mark – until the edges of the cookies start to brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
