Sugar Cookies on a Stick

You and your family can have fun indoors by creating these tasty and charming treats. Kid-friendly Sugar Cookies on a Stick are totally customizable and perfect winter treats. The secret to making these tasty sweets is to use Karo Syrup. In cookies, it helps maintain freshness, and in marshmallows, it helps control sugar crystallization, which keeps them smooth and creamy.

 

CookiesIngredients:

3/2 cups sugar

1 cup shortening

2 eggs

1/4 cup Karo Light Corn Syrup

3/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon Argo Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Craft sticks

 

Combine sugar and shortening in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed with electric mixture until well mixed. Add eggs, corn syrup and vanilla. Beat until well blended and fluffy. Gradually add flour, baking powder and salt to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Chill dough at least 1 hour before using. Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Preheat oven to 375° F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape dough into walnut-size balls. Push craft sticks into the center of each ball. Place balls, with stick parallel to the baking sheet, 3 inches apart. Flatten cookies into 2½-inch circles. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly browned around the edges. Don’t overbake. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before placing on wire rack to cool completely. When cookies are cool, wrap in plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon or place in airtight container.
