Depends on the kind of cookie. I once gapped out while making a batch of chewy coconut cookies and just mixed everything together at the same time. They turned out fine. Try baking a few and see what happens. It's not a recommeded way of mixing cookies, but you might get lucky and they'll be fine. If they turn out too stiff, which is what I think might happen, try adding a little liquid. It would help if I knew what type of cookie and what the test batch bake results are. I probably won't be near the computer again for a few days, but someone else may be able to direct you.

nothing will happen to your cookies, the sugar will melt into the batter while baking.

good luck with your sugar cookie pops!

isnt the sugar needed to beat into the butter to cut up the fat and then the butter breaks down the the sugar or something like that?

nice that they turned out fine Carl Aird!

GRK I think in cakes it can be very critical, some cookie recipes are not as picky as to how they go together. Did you ever have to do the experiment where you use three temperatures of butter and then look at the crumb of the cake, it can be very different with butter that was too hard and cold, and butter that's too warm. I was taught to bend the stick of butter, you want it to be able to bend nicely, not mush (too warm), but not break in the bend (too cold).

GRK, do you have Bo Friberg's books The Professional Pastry Chef and/or The Advanced Professional Pastry chef? If you're not in a position to study now, plowing through those books (reading and baking) are a good education. The first one, the non-advanced has lots of background info in them as well as recipes. It's $44.10 last time I checked on amazon.com, it's over a thousand pages.
