POSSIBLY THE CUTEST PARTY FAVOR EVER!
As soon as I saw the idea for using a floral vial at bettycrocker.com I started brain storming on ideas of what I could do with them and where I could find the vials at a reasonable price. I got mine from the floral department in my Safeway for only .10 cents each. Great price right?
Spiral Cookie Lollipop-Party Favor Recipe (makes 2-1/2 dozen)
2 cups plus 4 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/4 cups butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
sprinkles (optional) 3 tablespoons of each color
In a large mixing bowl combine the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, salt and sugars. Mix briefly. Add the butter in pieces, mix until the mixture has the consistency of cornmeal. Add the vanilla and mix just until a ball forms.
Divide into 2 balls. Add food coloring of your choice and 2 tablespoons of flour to one ball. Repeat for the second ball.
Roll out each portion of dough between sheets of waxed paper into a rectangle about 10 x 8-inches.
Peel wax paper on one side and lay one layer on top of other. Leave the wax paper at the bottom of the bottom layer to help with the rolling process. Roll into a jelly roll and wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to slice. Place sprinkles into a 9×13 pan, roll the log until completely covered.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the log into 1/2 inch thick cookies, insert Popsicle stick and bake for 17 to 19 minutes, until the cookies are no longer shiny on top and the bottoms are golden. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before carefully removing to a wire cooling rack. When ready to either serve or give as a party favor insert the Popsicle stick into the vial filled with mini candy. (I used mini M&M’s I found at WalMart)
