Cinco Sombrero Cookies

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I love Cinco De Mayo, the fun colors, the amazing food, and the festivities!
I'm actually kind of sad we wont be in Texas to celebrate this year, but don't you worry we had a little pre-cinco party! We had Chicken Fajita Quesadillas, Dos xx, and finished with some cute sombrero sugar cookies! 

These cookies are super simple to make and extra cute! 
Lets get into how I made them, shall we?

*I made sugar cookies from scratch, but you could TOTALLY use a pre-made mix to make the sugar cookies* 

What you'll need 
190g All Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar 
1/4 tsp salt 
1/2 (115g) softened butter 
3/4 cup granulated sugar 
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract

I can not stress enough, adequate flour measuring will make your cookies. 

Combine sugar and butter on medium (you can use a hand mixer) for about 2 minutes until fluffy. 
While this is mixing combine flour, baking powder, cream of tar tar, salt, and baking soda. Set aside. 

add in the egg, again mix on medium until fully combined (about 2 minutes) Then slowly add in your vanilla.  

Once all wet ingredients are all combined and fluffy, 
Slowly add in flour mixture, mixing on medium.

Roll these bad boys up into little balls (about 2 tablespoons of dough each) and chill for AT LEAST 2 hours. I chilled mine for about 4. 

Preheat your oven 15 minutes before baking. 
You want to take out the chilled dough and directly place the cold cookies into the oven.  
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. 
The cookies will look slightly under cooked, but they will finish cooking while cooling. Trust me. You don't want to burn these pretty little things. 

So while the cookies are cooling on the baking sheet (about 10-15 minutes) It's time to get the frosting ready
 I love my frosting recipe, but today I decided to use store bought.  I also just used a sandwhich bag for my icing, just cut a little hole in the corner and Voila! 
The cookies need to cool on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes and then move them to a cooling rack to cool for another 5-10 minutes. 

Now for the fun part! Ice around the outer rim of the cookie, then dip the cookie in the sprinkles. I found filling the plate with sprinkes works better than trying to sprinkle the sprinkles over the cookie. (it's also a lot less messy) 

Then add one dot of icing to the center and repeat the dipping process. Place a Dot Candy on top and you're done! They are so cute! I loved making these! 

Cheers and Happy Cinco-De-Drinko!
