Who can resist a cookie on a stick? It’s an indulgence…decadant…pure fun!
It certainly is not your everyday cookie…..perfect for a party.
I have always marvelled at cookies on a stick… eager to try baking them myself. With dairy, egg, sesame, and peanut/tree nut allergies in the home, buying them was out of the question.
So when an opportunity to make them came up…I took it!
I used the baking suggestions for cookies on a stick, from Canadian Living Magazine’s November 2006 issue.
The Sugar Cookie recipe is my childhood favourite. My mom called them ‘Holiday Cookies’. I can still remember pulling out the dishwasher and rolling the cookie dough out on the wooden cutting board top.
My mom and I would only bake, ice and decorate them for Christmas. (Not sure why) The smell of them baking in my kitchen always stirs up memories of Christmas Holidays past.
‘Holiday Cookies’ were my ultimate favourite Christmas cookies to bake and eat.
I am so happy to be able to adapt them for my boys to enjoy.
Hopefully these cookies will conjure ‘sweet memories’ for them too.
Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sugar Ghost Cookies on a Stick
In a large bowl, cream the dairy-free margarine and the sugar.
Beat in the vanilla and water until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Gradually add flour mixture to the creamed mixture until well combined.
Divide dough into two balls, wrap in wax paper and chill in refrigerator.
Tip: I used my 40% off coupon to purchase the cookie sticks from Michael’s and the Hallowe’en ribbon was 50% off.
Always CHECK INGREDIENTS each time you purchase products.
