rainbow cookie pops
Look what I made for the “Tasty Treats” category of CraftShare 2011 over at Sew Can Do. Square rainbows (hmmm, these probably don’t really exist) on sticks. But rainbow cookie pops are still colorful and tasty.
how to make rainbow cookie pops
*Find the cookie or fondant cutter, lollipop sticks, decorating bags, couplers and tips at the craft store. You’ll need one bag, coupler and tip for each color you choose. For food coloring, I suggest Americolor soft gel pastes. Red Red, Orange, Egg Yellow, Electric Green, Sky Blue, Electric Purple and Regal Purple used here.
Prepare cookie dough, chill, roll out, cut out squares, insert lollipop sticks and bake according to the recipe. Let cool completely.
Prepare royal icing according to the recipe. Divide and tint your rainbow colors. I made red, orange, yellow, lime green, blue, purple and indigo. Prepare decorating bags with couplers and tips, fill with each color, and close tightly with rubber bands.
step three: decorate your cookies
Pipe stripes with each color. That’s it! Let dry overnight before handling. TIP: You may want to trace the square cookie cutter on a piece of parchment paper and practice piping the lines first to make sure you space your lines correctly across the cookie.
