It's been too long since I've done a cookie pop, but when this idea popped (pun intended) into my head, I knew I had a winner! It's cute, it's easy, it's fun!
I was thinking about pirates because Sept. 19 was "Talk like a pirate day." Who knew?
I didn't find out until that very day (Aaarrrrggghhh!), and wanted to join in even though I was short on time. Well, I didn't get to them until the next day, but that's okay...it is the season for costumes, pretending, and dress up fun.
Wouldn't these pirate patch pops be perfect for a pirate party favor? Say that five times, fast!
How about a Halloween/costume party?
Even adults have fun with them:)
Well mateys, if you want to add this cookie to your treasure chest (cookie jar), just follow these directions...
Pirate Eye Patch Cookies
Black food coloring
Eye patch template
Make cookie dough, and add black food coloring, mixing well.
Roll the cookie dough out, thick enough to insert a stick into.
Place template onto the dough and cut around it with a sharp knife.
Transfer to a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before baking.
After taking from freezer make a small slit in the bottom of dough patch.
Insert the lollipop sticks into each one.
Bake according to recipe.
Let cookies cool completely.
While they cool, make the royal icing.
Using the royal icing, pastry bag and #2 tip decorate the patch with a skull and cross bones.
