More Bake Sale Goodies

Posted by  ·  October 7, 2008  ·  Last Updated: October 7, 2008

These Scarecrow cookies are what I took for my daughter’s bake sale. Someone had made some similar ones at my son’s bake sale.  I am thinking the original idea came from Family Fun Magazine.  I made sugar cookies on long sticks so I could stick them into a small hay bale I found at Hobby Lobby.

I thought it was a fun way to display the cookies so they could be sold individually.

Here is the sugar cookie recipe I used.

    I found the recipe! The eyes are upside down chocolate chips, mouth is pull apart licorice, and the hair is Kashi GoLean cereal.

    Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and leaving
    comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    Just found this post via Pinterest.com.

    You could easily use Oreo cookies as the base cookie, dipped into melted white candy melts/ chocolate! Mini M&M's for the eyes, and broken pretzels for the hair,

    I found the Family Fun Magazine recipe to help everyone know what they used for hair and icing etc. You can find the link below:


    I love the presentation shown on here so I will use the products shown on the Family Fun Magazine link but I will definitely use SkipToMyLou's design and pesentation of them! Adorable! Thanks!

    I just found these and thought they were so cute. Did anyone ever find out what was used for the hair? I read all the comments but never did see that question answered.

    What is the hair made of? Where do you find the sticks?

    Thanks so much. I just stumbled on this site and have made 3 of your crafts with my son since yesterday morning!

    I will definitely try thee next year. What an adorable idea. You did a great job with them and the mini haystack is perfect.

    SO CUTE! I love these...I am so making these for my son's preschool class.

    So I'm also interested what the hair is. And what did you use for the eyes?

    Thanks so much for sharing the great idea!

    How cool are these? I'm jealous that you can still do bake sales. Our schools in Oregon went to store-bought-ONLY treats YEARS ago!
  18. Monday, October 13th, 2008
    Wow those are so cute. How did you get the cookie to stay on the stick? Are those the same sticks that you use to make chocolate?

    What is the hair made of?

    I'm sorry to bother you, but I would love to make these for my students.

    Those cookies are so cute! I am going to make myself a mental not (actually, I better make myself a REAL note) to use them as a Christmas project for the kids. With a few alterations, they could be great snowmen. Thanks, as always, for the great ideas.
