~ Sugar Cookie Suckers ~
2/3 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 T milk
1 t vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
24 flat popsicle sticks, wooden
assorted decorations, chocolate chips, candy, raisins
food coloring (optional)
Preheat oven to 375F.
Cream vegetable shortening, sugar, milk and vanilla in
large bowl with an electric mixer until well blended.
Add egg and mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and
salt in another bowl, then add to creamed mixture. Cover
and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Shape
dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Push ice cream sticks into
the centers of the dough balls. Place dough suckers
about 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Flatten to 1/2 inch with the bottom of a large glass
drinking glass which has been dipped into sugar.
Decorate as desired. Be sure to press decorations
into dough so they won't fall off after baking. Bake
for 8 - 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes,
then remove to cooling racks. To paint cookie suckers
mix one egg yolk and 1/4 teaspoon water. Divide evenly
into 3 small cups. Add 2 to 3 drops different food
colors to each cup. Stir. Use water color brushes to
paint cookies before baking. Decorate if desired.
Wrap each sucker individually in a plastic sucker bag
and tie with a twist tie. Embellish sucker with
Christmas curly ribbon.
