I’m back up and running after the St Eugene Bridal Fair this Sunday, and (I think) I have recovered! All the prepping, set up, chatting and take down, while not overly intense, all adds up and ends up very tiring. But, the best thing about a Bridal Fair is the chance to get to talk with all of the excited brides, and their loved ones.
Oh yes, love is in the air . . .
Speaking of love . . . with Valentine’s Day ideas floating all around the internet, I was super excited to think of a new cookie pop idea! The last time I made cookies with a stained glass effect, I was probably a teenager! I loved baking even back then, and now, those golden nugget ideas are coming in super handy! How cute is a cookie with a window cutout?? If it could get any cuter, putting the cookie on a stick is to die for! I don’t know why, but I love eating food off a stick! It makes me feel much more refined as you can take dainty little bites and most importantly, you don’t have to get your hands dirty!
Unfortunately, when biting into a stained glass windowed cookie, the window is hard. Like, crack your teeth, shocking hard! So watch out if you make them . . . and forget that they are hard candies melted in the center . . . not gooey centers . . . not that I did that or anything. Twice. Maybe.
To make these cookies, you will need:
Sugar Cookie Dough (my favourite is here)
Cookie/Cake Pop Sticks
Crushed Hard Candies (jolly ranchers, lifesavers work well)
