This recipe is a favorite of mine to make for special occasions. The cookies freeze beautifully, so they can conveniently be made ahead of time. Substitute peach, strawberry or raspberry jam if you like.
The original version of this recipe was handed down from my great-aunt. Through the years, my mother and I have tried different flavor combinations...this is a favorite for all. —Brenda Keith, Talent, Oregon
Set out a basket of these pleasing "lollipops" at your next bazaar or family event and watch them disappear! You can easily create characters by icing the cookies with store-bought frosting like the CT home economists did here or serve them plain just as Jan Cassidy of El Reno, Oklahoma often does. "Our children love eating cookies either way," Jan details. "What I enjoy is the fact that serving the sweets on sticks like this keeps messy hands to a minimum."—Jan Cassidy, El Reno, Oklahoma
