Lolly Cookies

“Mummy, can you make some rainbow lollipops for my children’s day party in school tomorrow ?”

This starts my plan for making lollipops. After browsing through recipes, I realised that I have a tight timeline to work on.

So, I decided to make 2 dozens lollipop-look-alike cookies to fulfill her request.

“The Perfect Sugar Cookies”  modified from The Sweet Adventure of sugarbelle

175 g  icing sugar  (I cut down to 120g)
227 g  unsalted butter (room temperature)
400 g – 450 g all-purpose flour
1          tsp salt
2          tsps baking powder
1          egg
1  1/2 tsp vanilla extract

400 g hundreds and thousands for decoration
24      cookie sticks

Instructions

  1. Cream together butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs and extract and mix well.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt, add to wet mixture little by little until well incorporated.
  4. Roll and cut cookies into circles of 5- cm in diameter and 1/2 inch thick , dusting with flour as necessary.
  5. Take the cookie stick and with a twisting movement back and forth, twist the cookie stick into the cookie.
  6. Bake cookies at 180 degrees C for 10 minutes until tops are appear dry. Do not brown.

Fresh from the oven.

Royal Icing Recipe

800 g  icing sugar
4         tbsps meringue powder
6        tbsps warm water
1          egg
1  1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Using a mixer, beat all ingredients until stiff peaks form. *Make sure all bowls and utensils are totally grease-free or the icing will not reach proper consistency.
  2. Spoon some of the thick white icing into a seperate bowl for piping.
  3. Add some warm water gradually to thin the rest of the icing.

Assemble :

1. Spread thin layer of the frosting in (3) above and drizzle hundreds and thousands on each of the cookies.

“My little elve at work – decorating the lolly cookies with her favourite hundreds and thousands.”

2. Let the toppings dry. Pipe the thick frosting in (2) into swirls on each cookie.

After much trial and error, finally gotten the right consistency for the royal icing.

The end product. 🙂

And all ready for the party!

This is my reward for the day! An elated girl with her little gifts for her friends.

      For the lollipop sticks, you can also use ice0cream sticks, that can be bought from stationery shop (in packets of at least 20). 🙂
