Sugar Cookie Lollipops

On Sunday, my best little baking buddy (Leila) and I decided to make some cookies for our storytime friends. We've been going to storytime every Tuesday morning since she was just a few months old and have made a lot of great friends! I wanted to do a little something for them for Christmas, and after watching "Paula Deen's Cookie Swap" I was inspired! I just Heatherized (simplified) the recipe.

The original recipe was to first start out making some pretty complex sugar cookies. I opted for Pillsbury ready-to-bake cookie dough instead.

I dyed one package of dough red, and one package of dough green. Placed the colors on top of each other, then rolled them into a log. I then chilled the log on floured parchment paper for two hours in the fridge.

Then, slice the log into 1/2" slices:

Brush a simple egg wash over the slices, and sprinkle away (sprinkling was Leila's job!) Then, stick a lollipop stick (I found them at Michael's) about a 1/2" into the dough:
And bake for 15 minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven. I put each cookie in clear cello, and wrapped them up with festive raffia.
They were easy and tasty and pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
