Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

 

Flat wooden craft sticks

Frosting

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons milk

Glaze

2 tablespoons light corn syrup

2 teaspoons water

Red, white and blue decorator sugars or sprinkles

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar, 1/2 cup butter, sour cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; continue beating until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half. Working with one-half at a time; roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch star cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Place wooden craft stick under each star; pressing cookie dough gently into stick. Bake 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet; carefully remove to cooling rack.

  4. STEP 4

    Repeat rolling and cutting with remaining dough. (Do not insert craft sticks.) Bake 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet; carefully remove to cooling rack.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Add milk; continue beating until well mixed. Beat at high speed until creamy. Cover; set aside.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine corn syrup and water in another bowl. Brush glaze over 1 cookie without stick; immediately sprinkle with decorator sugars or sprinkles, as desired. Repeat with remaining cookies.

  7. STEP 7

    Frost bottom of 1 cookie with stick with about 1 teaspoon frosting. Place 1 decorated cookie without stick over frosting; press down slightly. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Tip #1

- These cookies can be made as regular cookies on a stick and not sandwiched. Place craft stick under all cookies before baking and decorate as desired.

Tip #2

- Push craft stick into Styrofoam and tie red and blue curling ribbon around stick for a festive centerpiece.
