Yield: 16 cookies
Preparation Time: 15 min; Bake: 12 min; Decorate: 30 min
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Follow the directions on the cookie dough package and roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness.
Use cookie cutters to cut out cookies from each shape.
Gently press a cake pop stick into the bottom half of each cookie cutout. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and completely cool before decorating.
Divide frosting into separate bowls and add 1 to 2 drops of food coloring to each bowl, mixing well to combine.
Spoon the colored frosting into zip-type storage bags and seal. Snip off 1/4-inch from one corner of each bag to pipe frosting onto cookies and decorate. Frosting can also be spread onto cookies using a spatula or knife.
Before the frosting has set, continue decorating by pressing jelly beans onto each cookie.
To make a basket garden:
Press styrofoam into the bottom of a basket and cover with Easter grass. Arrange the cookie pops by pressing the sticks into the styrofoam.
Add jellybeans, speckled chocolate eggs and other seasonal candy to cover the Easter grass and complete the garden.
