Lesson #2 in How to Make Cookie Bouquets. Rolling, Cutting, and Baking
Roll out dough on a floured surface with a rolling pin. For best results roll it out about 1/2 inch thick. .
Cut dough with cookie cutters and place onto ungreased cookie sheets paper for baking.
To insert lollipop stick, twist stick while inserting into cookie. I lay my hand on top of the dough so I can feel how far the stick has gone it. It must go at least half way up the cookie. Make sure your sticks don’t overlap. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 8-12 minutes.
Remove when they just start to brown at the edges. Immediately use the back (flat) side of a pancake turner to flatten the cookies so you have a flat surface to work on when decorating. Cool for 2-3 minutes on cookie sheet, then remove from the baking sheet and cool completely on a cooling rack before decorating them. Don’t handle by sticks until completely cooled!
