Cakery Friday: Cinco De Mayo Taco Cookies

Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo. So in honor, we created these adorable Taco Cookies Don’t worry they have just as many calories as a regular taco {if not more}.. A compilation of sugar cookie, Oreo, butter cream, coconut flakes and M & M’s, they are loaded with fun. Just pair with a margarita and you’ll be good to go.







Gather all of the ingredients.







In the bowl of your electric mixer mix together 1 1/4 sticks of unsalted, room temperature butter with 3/4 cup of sugar until light and fluffy.







Add in 1 egg, mix until combined. Finally add in 2 cups of all purpose flour. Mix until combined. I added in some yellow food gel to make it look more taco’ish. Place dough in refrigerator and allow to chill completely.







In the meantime, create half moon molds out of aluminum foil.







Remove the dough from fridge. On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough until 1/4 inch thickness. Using a round cutter {size is up to you, and depending on how large your foil molds are} cut circles out of the dough. Place over the foil.







Bake at 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool. Remove the foil “molds” carefully.

And for the toppings:

Meatt: combine crushed Oreos with melted chocolate. I left my Oreo’s slightly chunky to give it a “meatier” look. Fill the taco shell with the “meat”.







Sour cream: I piped a small amount of butter cream on top of the “meat”.







Lettuce and mustard: Take coconut flakes and color them with both yellow and green food gel. Sprinkle of top of “sour cream”.







For the tomatoes: Top with red M&M’s.







Enjoy! Ole!

Happy Cinco de Drinko Mayo

xoxo,

Ali
