Play Dough Lollipop Cookies

I know I promised you some pictures of the other felt projects I had made, but there was absolutely NO SUNSHINE anywhere near my house to take a decent picture (and the ones I took with the flash looked horrible). So I will post it later. Here is something I already had on tab…Play Dough Lollipop Cookies!

Play Dough Cookie Lollipops

What better way to brighten up a snowy afternoon than make these bright and colorful lollipop cookies.

3/4 cup butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt assorted colors of paste food coloring
24 lollipop sticks

In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until smooth.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir till soft dough forms.

Divide dough into fourths. Tint each with a different food color. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Working with half of each color, shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and for each cookie place 1 of each color together to form a large ball.

Shape into a 12 inch long roll by rolling with palms of hands into a snake like rope.

Start at one end and coil roll to make a 2 3/4 inch round cookie. Place cookies 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Carefully insert lollipop sticks into bottoms of cookies.

Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.

These were so fun to make. My daughters helped me one snowy afternoon! These would be so fun to give as a gift to someone, or save them to eat yourself! These are so colorful, I think looking at them made me happier than eating them! A perfect pick me up for the winter blahs!

    My kids would LOVE me if I made these! I just need some paste food coloring…where do I get that? I'm definitely going to have to try these!!! thanks!!

    Thank you so much for sharing these ideas with us Amy. My girls will absolutely love making these lollipops. Bonus for me that I already have everything on hand to make them with the girls. We're expecting a rainy weekend here so I will definitely be doing this with them then! I think we'll also do red, white & pink rolled together to make heart ones too to get into the Valentine spirit! Thanks so much again!

  21. 22

    Hi Amy! Would you mind sharing what lenses you use on your camera?…Your blog photos are always so crisp, so bright and really, really pretty to look at. If you have already answered this before, sorry for asking again…Thanks!

  22. 23

    Oh I can't wait to try this with my niece and nephew! Thanks for sharing!

  23. 24

    The sticks I used were found at JoAnn's last year. I had some left over. They are about 12 inches in length. They were labeled as "lollipop sticks" I believe.

    I have a Nikon D40 camera and I almost always use my 55-200 mm lens. I just stand farther away from my subject and either zoom in to get a short depth of field or stay zoomed out to get more of my subject area in focus.

    And thanks to the rest of you for your kind words. As always, I love it when you give me a link to one of your projects you completed from seeing it here. I try to visit each of the links!

  24. 25

    yum. i am in love with the whole process. how fun to roll it out and to get such a pretty result. thanks for this!

  25. 26

    I made these today with my daughter and they turned out great! Thank you for the fun idea. We had a great time making them and giving them away to our neighbors. I'm new to your blog and absolutely love it. I can't wait to try out more of your crafts. Thanks for sharing all your fabulous ideas. You are so creative and a great Mom!

  35. 36

    SO cute…may make these for my 2 year old class Valentine's party. Thanks for sharing.

  36. 37

    OMG, these are cute. I don't even have kids and I'd make them.

  37. 38

    Thanks for sharing, your ideas are always so fun! What a great mommy you are! Your site has definitely inspired me and I can't wait to use some of your ideas as my family grows. I love these lollipop cookies,they will be perfect for my son's first birthday party! I am so excited!

    A great idea. These look delicious. I must try them out this weekend.

    I found something as a substitute lollipop stick and hope I can manage to get some coloring with just normal food coloring. I live in a small town nowhere near a craft store. I'm trying to make the Valentine version.

    I'll let you know how they work. I wish I had access to nicer craft supplies around here.

  40. 41

    These are so great. Making the Valentines Day ones this week for a little play date but am very excited to make the rainbow ones for my daughters Over the Rainbow party this spring.

  41. 42

    Thanks for this idea! I made them for our preschool group when we learned about r and instead of making them lolipops we made them into rainbows. So fun!

  42. 43

    What great cookies! I am making these for the office, I know I should use red and pinks for Valentine's Day but I am using these colors since we have snow and they are so very cheery! I do have a one question though, you call for butter so should I actually use butter or margarine? I made my dough last night and plan on making the cookies tonight and I am hoping they turn out since I actually used butter and not margarine. Thank you for such a wonderful blog! I love your ideas! Making the decorative soap bottles next!

  43. 44

    Yes…Shawn, I used butter. I almost always use butter in my recipes when I bake.

  44. 45

    Very cute! I love the website, but I haven't seen this recipe.
    We are going to be moving out of state next week and my son wants to make these for the kids in his Sunday School class as a "Thank You for being my friend" gift, and I'll give him credit for home ec/art today :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  45. 46

    I made these with my kids and they loved them! I posted my pictures and linked back to you! Thanks for sharing.

    Just made Edible Playdoh… I let the kids make what they chose to instead of the lollipops but it definitly turned out great .I used 1/2 cup of butter, 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour, and a splash of vanilla extract. The kids loved it and they looked great. 14 kids 2 groups of 4, 2 groups of 3. Each group made different colours then they shared the colours.

  47. 48

    What a great party idea! My daughter will turn 4 soon and loves rainbows.

  48. 49

    how many cookies does this recipe make if i do it exactly like you said?

  49. 50

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are
    going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

  50. 51

    It’s actually a great and useful piece of
    info. I’m happy that you just shared this useful information with us.
    Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  51. 52

    Appreciating the time and energy you put nto your blog and detailed information you present.

    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    outdated rehashed material. Wondeful read! I’ve saved your
    site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google

  52. 53

    com does not host or decode the video streams and thus does not modify
    them in any way but simply links to the Internet channels that provide the coverage
    of the game. In football games, twenty-two people must work together to make the offense
    and defense work. Matt Flynn has been a dud since having
    one blowout game with the Packers and doesn’t have the arm strength to stretch the defense and the team has no other weapons for the defense to focus

    Hi. Just planned to consult a rapid question. I’m arranging my web site and would choose
    to know in which you have your own design? Has been it cost-free?
    Or even seemed to be this paid out? I can not manage to come across whatever as effective
    as this blog, so ideally you are able to let me know.
    Appreciate it. PS, my i’m sorry. British is just not my personal primary words.

  54. 55

    Howdy. Merely planned to question a simple problem. I am just setting up my blog site and
    wish to recognize wherever you have your own theme?
    Has been that cost-free? Or maybe has been the idea paid? I am unable to manage to locate whatever just
    like this one, therefore ideally you possibly can allow me to realize.
    Many thanks. PS, our sorry. British isn’t our primary terminology.

    Because the admin of this website is working, no hesitation very soon it will be well-known, due to its quality contents.

    If you need to perform something urgent then perhaps, And – FTP (Free) is the best solution for a web
    designer. Additionally, it was also tried with Wi-Fi connection and 7.
