Sugar Cookie Tacos


This is one of those desserts that is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They take a little bit of work to make the cookies, but they are so worth it! I have been slaving in the kitchen making a huge mess because I attempted a gluten free version first.  We discovered the gluten free sugar cookies crumble and break instead of bending.   So, Gluten free version went in a bowl.

Then I moved onto good ole’ stick to the roof of your mouth Sugar Cookies.   While they are still warm shape them in your hand like a taco shell.  Allow them to cool and then I filled them with Ice Cream, and chopped fruit.  A chocolate sauce drizzle topped them off.  You could use Cool Whip instead of ice cream and any type of topping you prefer.  These are really simple, and will wow any crowd!

  1. I was thinking, if you call it a tostada (or even pizza), you wouldn’t have to bend it. 🙂 It looks delicious no matter how you “shape” it. Gotta try it.
