Magical Star-Spangled Banner Cookie Pops Ingredients

How to:

Step 1: Roll out your dough to about 1/2 inch thick, cut out cookies, and put on a parchment or Silpat lined cookie sheet.  This is thicker than my usual cookies because you need room to put in the popsicle stick.

Step 2: Refrigerate cut cookies for at least 30 minutes and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take cold cookies and carefully insert the popsicle stick into the middle to create the cookie pops.

You want it to go in at least 1.5 inches but make sure it doesn’t poke through the cookie!

Step 3: Bake for 10-12 minutes (this is a bit longer than usual, but you want them to be sturdy for dipping) and until they are getting slightly golden on the corners and bottom of the cookie pops.

Step 4: While your cookie pops are baking mix your icing.  Combine 3 tbsp meringue powder, 4 cups powdered sugar, juice from 1 lemon.  Mix, and then add 1 tbsp of cold water at a time until desired consistency. Divide into 3 bowls and add red coloring to one bowl, blue to another and leave the last one white.

Step 5: Using a shallow dish with some colored icing on it, carefully dip the front of your cookie pops in the icing.  Once the front is covered, put on some sprinkles if you want, and let it dry on a cooling rack or cookie sheet.
