Foolproof Cookie Pop Recipe

With Valentines right around the corner, created a batch of cookie pops is always a fun gift for teachers, kids, and loved ones. However, making cookie pops can be such a finicky process. Some recipes don’t cook thick enough in the center, lose their shape in the oven, or simply don’t taste delish once they’re done. Which is why I love this simple, shortbread recipe so much. Just roll it to about 1/2″ thick, cut it into any desired shape (you can even use a cookie stamp to decorate!) then bake it, decorate it, and wow someone you love this Valentines day!

Foolproof Cookie Pop Recipe
2 cups flour
1 cup salted butter, slightly softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 vanilla bean, seeded
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together flour, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla bean. Knead all ingredients until a ball of dough forms. Roll dough out to 1/2-inch thick. Press a popscicle or sucker stick into the center of each cookie. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
