COOKIES ON A STICK — from Meredith

1 PACKAGE (16.5 OZ) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE refrigerated chocolate chip cookies

8 wooden craft sticks

decorator icing (various colors)

candies (sprinkles, etc)

melted chocolate

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Shape cookie dough into eight 2-inch balls. Place four balls  at a time onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Insert wooden sticks into each ball so it looks like a lollipop and then flaten slightly.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges are crisp.  Cool on cookie sheet for one minute and then remove to wire rack.

Decorate as you desire.

THESE ARE GREAT FOR GIFTS.  JUST WRAP IN CLEAR BAGS AND TIE WITH RIBBON.
