Summer wouldn't be complete without the ultimate poolside treat - a Popsicle. But, honestly, who wouldn't love a Popsicle sure to melt in your mouth and not down the front of your perfectly pristine bathing suit? These Popsicle cookies by my dear friend Jennifer Vogelpohl do just that. They are great for gifts or a day at the beach where you just don't have a freezer handy!

Sugar Cookies

  • *Preheat oven to 375
  • Cream together until fluffy: 1 Cup Butter 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • Add and set aside: 1 Beaten Egg 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • Mix Together: 3 Cups Plain flour 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder 1/8 Teaspoon Salt

Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture gradually. It works best to mix with your hands. Roll into a ball and chill for 15-20 minutes. Roll out about 1/4” thick using powdered sugar instead of flour to prevent sticking. Cut with the cookie cutters of your choice and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Remove before edges brown. Cool and decorate as desired.

Royal Icing:

  • 3 Tablespoons Meringue Powder
  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Water (adjust as needed)

Mix all ingredients with a hand mixer on low until smooth. For icing cookies you want a thin icing that creates a ribbon on the surface of itself that can be seen for about three seconds. Divide and dye with gel food colorings as desired. Pour into decorating bottles and create!
