Lollypop Cookies

I mentioned in my last post I was going to try to stick to a bit of a theme with my September posts, here is my second sweet made of sweets idea, Lollypop Cookies.
I don't really know what to say about these cookies except- how cute are they? These might be the coolest cookies I've ever made, they were so easy but I think they look awesome! I can't wait to make some for halloween, I think some in orange and black will be a great addition to a halloween dessert table.
To make the cookies- Prepare cookie dough. (I used my usual sugar cookie recipe)

Divide the dough into equal parts and knead a different colour into each. I used pink, yellow, and blue.

Take a small amount of each colour of dough (a bit over a heaped teaspoon) and press one on-top of the other.
Role the dough out to form a rope around 30cm long.
Twist each end of the rope in the opposite direction to make the swirling pattern.
Coil the rope of dough up into a tight coil.
Make the cookie to the size you like (they will spread a little while baking), trim off any excess and gently press the end to attach.
Place the cookies in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to firm up a little so they hold their shape as you gently push in the popsticks.
Bake the cookies according to the sugar cookie recipe. Allow them to cool on the baking trays.
Decorate with little bows and enjoy!
