Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 26 lollipop sticks
  • FROSTING:
  • 3-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons 2% milk
  • Edible glitter and colored sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk and extracts until smooth. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 in. thickness. Using a 3-1/2 in. star shaped cookie cutter, cut out 26 stars. Using a 1 in. star shaped cookie cutter, cut out 26 small stars. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets. Press a lollipop stick into each large star.
Bake 350° for 9-11 minutes until lightly browned. Carefully remove to wire racks to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, extract and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Spread over cookies; immediately attach a small cookie to each large cookie. Decorate as desired with glitter and sugar. Let stand until set. Yield: 26 cookie pops.
