Christmas Trees on a Stick


1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup dark corn syrup

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

6 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine butter, sugar, corn syrup and vinegar in a medium sauce pan. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool until lukewarm. Add eggs and whisk until combined.

In a large bowl, mix flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Gradually pour syrup mixture over flour while mixing with a wooden spoon. Continue mixing until a dough forms. Turn dough out onto a clean counter and knead with hands to bring the dough together.

Shape into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in refrigerator one hour.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to ¼-inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes. Press lollipop sticks into the backs of the cookies and place onto a baking sheet.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until firm and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

After cookies are cooled completely, decorate with melted candy wafers and sprinkles.
