Snowman Carrot Nose Cookie Pop


I have another fun treat for you today:) A carrot nose cookie pop!  The best part is that it's very easy to make!
I used my favorite sugar cookie dough and a carrot nose template I made from heavy paper. I placed the template on the rolled out dough (I roll it out pretty thick, 3/8-inch), cut out the cookies with a sharp knife and put them on the cookie sheet, leaving room to insert the sticks.  With a small, sharp knife I made a tiny slit at the spot on the cookies that I wanted to insert the sticks(about an inch from the wide end), and then gently inserted them about halfway in. I placed the baking pan in the freezer for about 15 minutes and then baked the cookies at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. When the cookies cooled, I used orange royal icing with a #3 tip to outline the cookie.  After the outline dried for about 15 minutes, I filled the carrots with the royal icing, thinned out a bit with water. After about an hour of drying, I added the details with a #3 tip and left them to dry.

These cookies would be very fun as a photo prop (as you can see) and then offered as a treat...double pleasure!  They would be the perfect cookie pop to make any time during the entire winter season.
 My second model wasn't quite as cooperative as my first;)

Have Fun with your own munchkins and make some Carrot nose cookie pops!

Geesh...it'll never end lol It was so much easier to write when I was going through that bad time - it was my 'binky', now I write it in spurts..no flow.
