Amanda made these in many different shapes, including the obvious round cookie-pops, plus heart shaped ones, rainbow shaped ones and a whole slew of shamrock themed ones. We made hamentasch shaped ones - that is to say, we made triangle shaped ones.
To make the hamentasch shaped cookie-pops, I followed the directions for the round cookie pops. Once I had all my round cookies made, I inserted a lollipop stick into each one and then just sort of patted the dough into a triangle. I had toyed with the idea of putting sprinkles in the center to act as the hamentaschen's filling, but I didn't. I'm pretty sure it was because the baby woke up.
I wrapped each cookie in a bag, placing the top tip of each triangle cookie in a corner of the bag and wrapping the bag behind the cookie so the seal was tight. Then I just tied ribbon around the top of the lolly stick and presto, fancy lollypop cookies. My kids were in awe, and the cookies even tasted good, something that doesn't always happen when we try fancy. But the kiddies were happy and sometimes it's nice to make your kid's day with a cookie.
This is a super fun project to do with the kids and I would for sure make these again when the kids are home. They can even do most of it themselves, once they get the hang of rolling the dough. A excellent fine motor skill activity, if you will. And what could be better than a fine motor skill project that ends in snacktime? Nothing. That's what.
