Here's a sweet activity to brighten up a rainy day -- bake a batch of these cookie pops, then let your kids decorate them with a rainbow of frosting colors.
Roll out the cookie dough into a 1/4-inch-thick disk. Use a plastic cup or round cookie cutter to cut out dough circles.
With a knife, cut each circle in half, then scallop the straight edge. Cut raindrop shapes from the dough scraps.
Lay cookie sticks on an ungreased cookie sheet and gently press a half-circle of dough on top of each. Place the raindrops on the sheet and bake the cookies according to the recipe directions.
Once the cookies have cooled, frost them. Pipe on icing lines and make vertical grooves by dragging a toothpick up to make one groove and down for the next, as shown.
For a special presentation, add a colorful handle by trimming a bendable straw and sliding it over the stick.
