Questions about making a cookie bouquet?

Question by Lolcat: Questions about making a cookie bouquet?
I’m wanting to make a cookie bouquet for my friends family for easter. I’ve tried making it before but I had some problems.
first off how do I make a dough that will not spread or will not spread much because last time it distorted the shape.
How do I put the stick in the cookies. do I bake it in with the cookies? If they are the paper sticks will the catch on fire or scorch?
Thanks so much!

Refrigerated sugar cookie dough
Cookie sheet
Wooden craft sticks or thin dowels
Pre-mixed white icing
Food coloring
Metal spatula
Wax paper
Rubber band
Colored plastic wrap

Step 1:
Pre-heat your oven to the temperature on the cookie packaging.

Step 2:
Open a package of refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Roll out the dough into eight 2-inch-sized balls or use a small heart cookie cutter to shape the dough into heart shapes.

Step 3:
Place the balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Insert wooden craft sticks or thin dowels into each cookie ball. Flatten the balls slightly.

Step 4:
Bake for about 13-to-15 minutes. Check on the cookies toward the end of the timeframe and remove them when the edges of the cookies are browned and crisp.

Step 5:
Mix icing with pre-mixed white icing and food coloring while your cookies are baking. You can use icing on your cookies with different colors or just use red and white.

Step 6:
Use a metal spatula to move the cookies from the cookie sheet to a sheet of waxed paper when they are done. Let them cool completely before icing.

Step 7:
Put the cookies together to make a bouquet. Wrap a rubber band around the ends of the sticks and wrap the sticks with colored plastic wrap.

***You can also make your bouquet out of chocolate chip cookie dough if you don’t want to spend time icing them.
