Halloween Cookie Pops

   These cookies are a fun treat to make with your kids.Simply use your favorite homemade or store bought sugar cookie dough, a little food coloring, and some lollipop sticks and you are ready to bake! Here is how I made them....
   Divide your dough into three equal parts. Choose the colors you would like to use. I left one plain, then colored the other two green and orange.
Place a few drops of food coloring into each part and incorporate well using your hands( messy but fun)!
   I then cut each third into smaller portions ( I did 4 portions of each color, because I was using a small amount of cookie dough, a full batch should give you much more). On a lightly floured surface, roll out three different colors to approximately the same length.

   Twist the dough carefully. Then start to roll it up from one end until you have a complete circle.

   Place the cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Carefully place a stick into the bottom of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees until lightly golden around the edges. Let cool completely before lifting, or the stick will fall out! Eat them right away or wrap them up to share as gifts for friends! Have fun!

 *** This idea can be used for any holiday, simply adjust the colors to fit the holiday theme.

*** I used candy apple sticks which are available at .
