Ingredients

Cookies

1 cup 250 mL butter, softened
½ cup 125 mL sugar
1 egg
1 can 300 mL Eagle Brand® Regular or Low Fat Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tsp 10 mL vanilla extract
4 ½ cups 1.1 L Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
½ tsp 2 mL baking powder
50 lollipop sticks

Glaze

3 cups 750 mL icing sugar
5 tbsp 75 mL water
Food colouring (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cookies: Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until well combined. Add egg, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and mix until smooth. Mix in remaining dry ingredients.
  3. Divide dough into 4 pieces. On a lightly floured surface roll each piece to a ¼” (5 mm) thickness. Cut out flower shapes with 2”- 3” (5 cm-7.6 cm) floured cookie cutters and place on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Tip

    Dream up other shapes and ideas with your kids and give your cookies a different theme. Instead of flowers, you could make a solar system, complete with planets, moons and a sun!

  5. Place lollipop stick underneath cookie, lightly pressing dough onto the stick. Gather up scraps and repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until beginning to colour. Cool on racks.
  7. Glaze: Combine, in a separate medium bowl, icing sugar with water. Brush a thin coating of glaze over cookies. Allow to dry for 10 minutes. Divide remaining glaze into small containers. If you run out just make a bit more. Add different food colouring to each container. Using a small paint brush, paint each cookie any way you like.
  8. Tip

    Make a painting station by setting out small bowls and filling them with different colours of water mixed with food colouring and icing sugar. Give your kids their food-safe paintbrushes and delight in their creativity.

    Tip

    Make a station for decorations like sprinkles or coloured sugar. Put them on while the glaze is still wet, and they’ll dry and stick to the cookies. Make a bouquet by wrapping the stems of the cookies together with tissue and ribbon.
