Snowflakes on a Stick Cookies
2 1/2 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. granulated sugar
2 t. finely shredded orange, lemon or lime peel
1 C. butter
1 T. milk
16 lollipop sticks
white edible glitter, nonpareils, and/or coarse sugar
Preheat oven to 325° F. In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar and grated peel. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Stir in the 1 T. milk. Form mixture into a ball. Knead until smooth. Divide dough in half.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a 3-4 inch snowflake cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Insert a lollipop stick at least 1- inch into each cutout.
Brush tops of cutout with additional milk. If using edible glitter, stir together equal portions of glitter and granulated sugar. Sprinkle glitter mixture, nonpareils, and /or sugar over cutouts. Bake in 325° F. oven for 15 minutes or until very light brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire rack; cool completely.
