  1. Flower Cookies on a Stick

  2. 1/2 cup sugar

  3. 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  4. 1/2 cup butter, at room temp.

  5. 1/2 cup canola oil

  6. 1 large egg

  7. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  8. 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  9. 1 tsp. vanilla

  10. food coloring

  11. wood or paper lollipop sticks

  12. In a large bowl, beat the butter and oil with both sugars until light. Add the egg and beat for another minute. Add the flour, baking soda and vanilla and beat on low speed or stir by hand just until you have a smooth dough. Remove about a third of it and set aside; add several drops of food coloring to the remaining dough and knead it in until incorporated (or leave it swirly). If you like, wrap or cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (This will cause the dough to spread less.)

  13. 350F. Roll the chilled dough into marble-sized balls. On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, arrange one plain dough ball, place a stick with its tip underneath it, then place

  14. 5 colored balls around it. (They will spread, so they can be close together without having to touch.) Bake for 15-20 minutes, until set.

  15. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies.
