  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Push craft sticks into the center of each ball. Place balls, with sticks parallel to the cookie sheet, 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten them slightly using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. This is the time to decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar if you desire.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. When cookies are completely cool, wrap in plastic wrap and tie with a pretty ribbon.

My daughter and I have made these 3 times and really enjoy them. They are easy, fun and make a great treat for children, bake sales or family functions.

I made these cookies for Valentines Day for my grandchildren. They were extremely salty. Overall the recipe was easy and they looked wonderful. I even tinted them with red food coloring. I tasted them a few days after baking and they were still too salty. I asked a couple of friends to try them and they agreed there was a definite salty aftertaste. I finally ended up not giving them to my grandchildren and throwing out the cookies. There is definitely something wrong with the use of 1/2 teasp of baking soda and 1/2 teasp of salt. Next time I would definitely reduce those amounts. I wish I had read the other review where someone also thought them too salty before I went to all the work of baking them and decorating them.

Melt in your mouth delicious! I rolleed the cookie dough balls in sugar sprinkles before baking and they were fabulous! Also used regular lollipop sticks instead of popsicle sticks. Thanks!

I tried these in a cookie boquet using green- colored popsicle sticks to creat a flower illusion as opposed to a lollipop.

I added a 1/2 butter (real butter) and it make such a difference in texture and it made the cookie chewy instead of crunchy.

Excellent Cookie Recipe!! I made Heart Shaped Lollipop Cookies for my daughters class and this recipe was perfect. I did take the advise of others and used Butter Shortening. I will definetley use this again. (Tip: Roll into balls and refridgerate for an hour or so. Keep them in the Fridge in until ready to use).

This makes a yummy, soft cookie, though a little salty. I flattened the dough slightly to use cookie cutters. My favorite was a flower shaped cookie, with a thumbprint hole in the middle where I added raspberry jam. Perfect for a flower cookie boquet.

These cookies were perfect for this sweet-tooth prego momma! I had very few ingredients in the house and did a search. This came up and it was AWESOME! I actually had changed a few things too. I used Wheat Flour and I packed my brown sugar (not too sure if it was to be packed). I also added more than listed pure vanilla extract (I do with most cookie recipes). I didn't have sticks but they were eaten too fast for that! Thanks!
