I just love making and eating cookies! ( who doesnt?? ) Since I am here in Canada, I make them like once a week and all my friends love me for that because they say that these are the best cookies they've ever had! *insert proud face here* Anyways, I thought that just plain cookies look kind of boring and as my hostsisters birthday was coming up ( she loves cookies and pink ), I decided to try something new. I first found the idea of making lollipop- cookie pops on missblueberrymuffins blog, a great blog with awesome recipes! So I used my own cookie recipe and her idea of making colored lollipops out of it and they turned out great. My hostsister was so happy- especially because they were pink, of course you can use any other color- but also because she thought it was such a cute idea :) They are definitely an eye catcher and they are easier to make than you think!
