Elf on the Shelf Cookie Pops

Elf on the Shelf Cookie Pops, Lay The Table If you know me, you know I kind of have a “thing” for cookie pops. You will find some of the evidence HERE, HERE and HERE.  So, when I spotted some tiny photo booth props for “Elf on the Shelf” on Amy’s Fabulous blog, Living Locurto, I was smitten! I knew I just had to make them into tiny cookie pops! As you can see, I could not get him to look at the camera~haha! Elf on the Shelf Cookie Pops, Lay The Table {Thanks Amy, for these adorable free printables!} First I needed to buy an elf, which my husband and I did last night. Even though we’re empty-nesters, I plan on having some fun with this elf, unnamed so far:) Maybe our grandchildren can help us name him (they all have their own elves).  Elf on the Shelf Cookie Pops, Lay The Table I was kind of in a hurry for this photo shoot, so I kinda, sorta, had to use some tape to hold up the cookie pops.  Whew, I feel better now that I got that off my chest (plus I think you can see part of the tape:)) I plan on coming up with a more authentic way (at least one that doesn’t show) for him to hold the cookie pops, for when my grandchildren are here.  I suppose I could  lightly glue or velcro.  Any ideas? The little elf is not very flexible, that’s for sure.  I’m certain his creators had no idea of the antics that he would be involved in when they developed him:)

Tiny Cookie Pops

Make sugar cookie dough (I only used a small portion of a batch) Free printables from Living Locurto (or make your own) to use as templates Royal icing Toothpicks Roll out cookie dough.  Place cut out templates on the rolled out cookie dough.  Cut around the template with a small, sharp knife.  Use a spatula to place the cookies on the baking sheet. Stick a toothpick into the bottom of each unbaked cookie.  Bake according to your recipe.  (I baked mine at 350 degrees for 13 minutes.) Let cool.  Using a small tip (I used 1.5) apply the royal icing.  I outlined with the royal icing,  and immediately filled in with a back and forth motion.  I kept the icing on the thick side since I was applying it to such a small cookie.  Let dry.
