If you're looking for standout VISUAL appeal, these cookies are WORTH IT. If you're simply looking for a yummy cookie, I'd pass these up. That being said, these DO taste good! However, they're just not worth the work if presentation isn't a motivating factor. Even though I refrigerated the dough overnight (and kept the dough balls in the frig between batches), I had issues w/the dough. When I attempted to roll the balls into a "snake", things got, well, sticky! I couldn't keep the dough from sticking to my hands (10X sugar would have helped, but I didn't want to dull my vibrant colors). I attempted to roll one out on a cutting board, but that worked worse than rolling between my hands. I baked my first 6 without lollipop sticks, as I wan't sure they were going to work (and they looked great as plain cookies, too). When I discovered they did work (I was wary of too much spreading), I added a lollipop stick to the final 12. My yield was only 18 cookies and I couldn't have made them any smaller and had them not look silly on the sticks (and I, actually, would have liked them to be bigger). One thing I really DO like about this recipe is the cookie edges don't brown, so they look super vibrant. All in all, I will make them again if presentation is a priority. THANKS for the recipe, Terri!
