Halloween Series...Day 11 Cat and Ghost Cookie Lollies

Well, it is just me of this little blog .

I just have to say thank you.
 You are wonderful readers and some of you
have become my blog friends.
 I really appreciate all your comments for my guest
 bloggers's awesome ideas..
Stick around for this mini Series, there is more to come.
Today I want to show ...
How to make  Cookie Lollies
Cookie lollies are not difficult to make, they just take a little extra time than making regular cookie cut outs.

To start, sprinkle parchment paper with flour and roll out the dough about 1/4 inch tick.
You want to make sure the cookie dough is tick enough  to accommodate the cookie sticks.

Take whatever cookie cutter you are going to use and cut out the cookie

Take the cookie stick and place your fingers on top of the cookie and with a twisting movement back and forth twist the cookie stick into the cookie.

Put your hand over the cookie and flip it over by using the parchment paper.
Lay the cookie on the backside

This is what you are going to see, do not panic please!

 Take a small piece of the cookie dough, rolled it into a sausage shape and flatten it. Lay the flatten small piece of dough over where the cookie stick is. Flip the cookie over again using the parchment paper
and transfer to the baking sheet.
Bake cookies until crisp but not dark, 12 to 14 minutes.
 Let them cool on sheets on wire racks.

Put stiff icing in a pastry bag fitted with a #2 round tip and outline the cookie.
Flood the cookie with your thin icing and let it dry over night or for a couple of hours.
For the BLACK CATS... I wanted to use sanding sugar

Working with a few cookies at the time and using a small paint brush,
 I  brushed the outline area of the cookie with corn syrup.
I immediately sprinkle the cookies with sanding sugar.
 Let stand 5 minutes and  tap off excess sugar.

And here is the final cookie, very simple to make right?
For the GHOST COOKIE...I wanted to use sanding sugar too, but I didn't have any in white LOL. So I did something else.

I mixed a little bit of pearl dust with a few drops of vodka.

Using a small brush I painted the cookie.When pearlized powder is painted onto royal icing 
 it takes on a shimmering luster which can be striking on cookies.
 You can see the difference in this picture
I really like the metallic-like finish
For the ghost's eyes I just rolled fondant very thin and using tip #5 I cut out some circles.
Using my fingers, I flattened the circles and attach them to the cookies with a little water. I did the same for the eyes's "pupils" with back fondant and tip#2.

Well, I hope you find the cookies easy to make. Come back tomorrow for another fabulous idea.

Jaw. Hanging. Open. These are fantastic! That type of frosting is truly terrifying to me. I know it must not be as hard as I imagine it to be. But still. Am scared.
