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.

  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.

Recipe Tips

- 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.

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