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!

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!

    These are great! We just made the rainbow cake for my 5 yr olds birthday, and I felt the same way. It made me happy just to LOOK at it. Okay but it tasted pretty good too! LOL

  2. Lynette says

    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!

  11. Julie Harward says

    What a super great idea!!! This would be a fun idea for any age, group or the grands! Thank you much..will do these! Come say hi :D

  12. Allison :) says

    First of all . . . I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! Holy cow, there are so many great ideas on here. You are awesome!

    What length of lollipop sticks did you use??

    These are going to be GREAT for my daughters birthday treat at school! Thank you for sharing!

  13. Carla G. says

    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!

  14. **Amy** says

    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!

  15. AmberLee says

    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!

  16. Carlie says

    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!

  17. Stephanie says

    I think these would make awesome party favors for my daughter's 3rd birthday party! It's not until April, but a girl's got to plan ahead, right? lol.

  23. Leslie says

    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!

  24. veela-valoom says

    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.

  25. Tanya says

    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.

  26. Tasha says

    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!

  27. Shawn says

    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!

    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!

  29. Tracy says

    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.
