Red White & Blue Cookie Pops

Red White and Blue Cookie PopsI knew I wanted to bake something cute for the 4th of July.  For Presidents Day of last year I made the cutest double American flag cake. Last year, I didn’t have much time to brainstorm around Independence day so to celebrate I whipped up some simple patriotic bow sugar cookies.  They are cute, but I wanted to make time to bake something super cute this year.  During one of my late night Google searches I came across these adorable red, white, and blue cookie pops.  I have made similar cookies to these in the past, but I used fondant to replicate the lollipop swirl and attached them to a plain round sugar cookie. Here, the cookie dough is tinted, twisted, and swirled and served up just like that!  No icing, just a classic soft sugar cookie on a stick; what could be bad?!How to form cookie pops

Here is a basic step by step picture guide to show you how I made these cookie pops.  For a more detailed tutorial, use the one I used from Carolyn of Occasional Cookies.  She graciously shared her method on a blog I follow called The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle. You can find the tutorial here.

Cookie Pops Ready To Bake

I used my perfect sugar cookie dough to make these cookies, but you can use any sugar cookie dough you like.  Before I twisted the stick through the pop, I chilled the cookies in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, just so the cookies wouldn’t get misshapen.
