Sugar Cookie Fruit Tacos!

I was recently looking on Pinterest for some sort of Cindo de Mayo themed dessert for my coworkers, and stumbled upon the most adorable sugar cookie fruit tacos - a fun twist on everyone's favorite fruit pizzas.

These little guys are a bit tedious, but if you are able to get the cookie to bend, they are way cute.


What you need:

- Sugar cookie dough
- Frosting
- Diced fruit (I used strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, and blueberries)

       


How to:

1.  Bake the sugar cookies as normal, but remove them from the oven about a minute before you normally would.

2.  As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven, remove them from their baking sheet and place them over a rounded surface (I used a paper towel tube).  If you wait too long, the cookies will not be soft enough to curve… but take care to ensure the cookies don’t break in the middle. 

This part was a little stressful because you have to work quickly and it seems like all of the cookies will either not bend or are breaking in the middle.  Just take your time, and you will be surprised that when the cookies cool they stay together nicely.

3.  Once your rounded cookies fully cool, place frosting on the insides and top with diced fruit.


If you’re more of a candy person, look at this variation that I found on Pinterest.  A bit much candy (I know, I never thought those words would ever come out of my mouth…), but it would be great for a kiddo’s birthday party.


If you’re looking for other tasty Cinco de Mayo eats, you’ve got to try this homemade salsa and this feta guacamole that I blogged about awhile back.  

Let me tell you, I can eat both of those with a spoon.

  2. Oh my gosh! These are the cutest! {I literally said this out loud when I saw this post!} I try to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the one thing all New Mexicans love, that Green Chile! I was thinking bringing a dish to work so my co-workers can try! But I celebrated last year with some homemade salsa! :) Happy Tuesday girly! :)

  5. Yum! I love fruit pizzas (what is up with pizza!?! agh!). What cracks me up is that Mexico hardly notices May 5th. It's not their real independence day, just a day they fought of France. Oh, America! :)

  35. These failed miserably. :( I have no idea how to get them to not split when trying to curve. Mine cracked apart. I tried right out of the oven, letting them cool a bit, I tried bigger size and right out of the oven and cooling. Out of 24 cookies I got 3 to curve. :(
