Drip-Free Crunchy Confections

The Popsicle Cookie Recipe is the Perfect Seasonal Sweet Alternative

— August 4, 2011 — Lifestyle

The delicious treat is made using a standard sugar cookie recipe and are placed in the oven with half of a popsicle stick stuck to its back.

The popsicle cookie is the perfect alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth without the mess!
