Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Work with half of cookie dough at a time; refrigerate remaining dough until needed.
  • 2 Cut dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into ball; flatten each until 1/2 inch thick. Place each flattened ball on one end of 1 wooden stick, covering 1 inch of stick. Place stick side down 3 inches apart on ungreased large cookie sheets, overlapping sticks as needed. Repeat with remaining dough and sticks.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Do not pick up cookie pops using sticks until completely cooled.
  • 4 Stir peppermint extract into frosting until well blended. Frost cookies. Sprinkle with edible glitter. Let stand until frosting is set, about 1 hour. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.
