Countdown Cookie Sticks For New Year’s and More Treats From The Archives




How to decorate countdown cookie sticks — a fun decorated cookie idea for your New Year’s Eve party.


Cookie sticks, cookie sticks, I’m all about the cookie sticks. Remember Rudolph cookie sticks and snowmen cookie sticks? (There are more out there, too.) I had some dough left over, froze it, and brought it out to make more sticks, this time for the New Year to make countdown cookie sticks.



Speaking of the New Year… this is my last blog post until 2015. (By the way, I just typed “2014” and had to change it to “15.” Wonder how many months into the new year I’ll be doing that?)

Have a great rest of the year!

how to make new year’s cookie sticks

You will need:

cookie dough
royal icing
dough scraper or knife
food coloring (white and any other colors)
disposable decorating bags
couplers
decorating tips (sizes 2, 3 and 4)
rubber bands

*Find the decorating bags, couplers and tips at the craft store. For tips on finding supplies, For tips on finding cookie decorating supplies, CLICK HERE. For food coloring, I suggest Americolor Soft Gel Paste (Bright White, Electric Pink, Electric Green, Orange and Sky Blue used here). For basic cookie decorating how-tos, click HERE. Scroll to the end for links to supplies.

step one: bake your cookies. Prepare cookie dough according to the recipe, chill, roll out and cut out rectangles. I use a dough scraper to cut out rectangles, but you can use a knife. These are about 5 inches by 1/2 inch. Bake and let cool completely.
step two: prepare your icing. Prepare royal icing according to the recipe. Divide (you’ll need the most of white, but for other colors, I usually work with about 1/2 cup at a time) and color whatever colors you like, including white for the background. Prepare decorating bags with couplers and tips, fill with the icing and close the bags tightly with rubber bands. Reserve some white icing in a bowl. Thin it with a few drops of water, stirring well. Fill an empty decorating bag (no coupler or tip is needed) and snip about 1/4 inch from the tip.

step three: decorate your cookies. Outline the cookies with the white using a size 4 tip. Let set about 15 minutes. Pipe back and forth to fill the cookies with the thinned white icing. Let set well, at least 30 minutes or so. Then, using size 2 or 3 tips on the colors, pipe the numbers. Let the cookies dry overnight before packaging or handling.
