One of my favorite things about Christmas is the cookies! I usually love to bake Christmas cookies with my Mom and Grandma. This year we have so many occasions that need treats. I wanted to find an easy no bake way to make some simple Christmas treats. I made these easy wreath Christmas cookies and trees too! I got store bought cookies. Bakery cookies from your local grocery store can taste just as good as homemade! Buy sugar cookies for decorating. You can make your own buttercream frosting for decorating or just buy the fun red and green tubes.

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays. I grew up in Phoenix and we always have a big celebration for Cinco de Mayo. It is the perfect time of year to be outside by the pool. We have a pool party celebration with lots of food, of course beer, family, and friends. I love Mexican beer! Corona Extra was the first beer I ever tried and I immediately loved the clean, crisp taste. I also love the rich, refreshing flavor of Modelo Especial. It is a family favorite. For our Cinco de Mayo celebration everyone brings Mexican dishes to indulge in. Usually I am in charge of desserts. I am an expert at eating Mexican dishes but not at making them. Desserts are my favorite to make for all occasions. I love desserts that look like savory foods and that is why I thought it would be the perfect time to make cookies that look like little tacos. In the past I have made cupcakes that look like hot dogs and cookies that look like pizza. Now it’s time to tackle taco cookies! They add some extra fun to the dessert table! These have all the elements of a real taco in sweet dessert form. They also pair very well with Modelo Especial and Corona Extra. The flavors of these beers taste amazing with a little sweet bite. I don’t know about you but I need a little sweetness to balance out all of the spice from a Cinco de Mayo meal. My dad makes his specialty spicy shrimp that come with a warning label because of the heat level. Not everyone can handle the heat. I usually can have one before my mouth is on fire!
I love tacos and I love cookies so I just had to put the two together. I made these adorable funfetti taco cookies that have fluffy frosting and colorful sprinkles all in a little taco shape! You can make these will all store bought foods not form scratch or make it all from scratch. I actually used the store bought marshmallow frosting and it was not too shabby. I usually make a homemade buttercream but sometimes I just don’t have time. Lack of time doesn’t stop me from making cute treats though! These are really fun to serve for a fiesta, Cinco De Mayo, or Taco Tuesday fun. They would be perfect for a girls night too. I also like to make real tacos because they are one of the few things that I can make and don’t have to keep looking at a recipe. Not to brag but I am the slowest cook around. I constantly forget how much of what to put in then I improvise and it all goes downhill from there. Luckily these cookies you can improvise with and they will still turn out yummy. Get creative with the frosting and sprinkles! You can do different colors of frosting and any color combination of sprinkles or shapes of sprinkles.
For my nieces birthday she had an outdoor movie party and it was a blast. I made these fun movie party desserts with popcorn cupcakes and marquee light cookies! I know a lot of people are now getting to the time of year where it is nice enough outside to do outdoor parties. We are sadly at the end of that time of year here so we will be moving the parties indoors. Even for an indoor movie night or slumber party movie night these movie party desserts are a fun treat! Everyone at the party loved the desserts.
I just love how these you have a pizza my heart cookies turned out! I am not an expert cookie maker yet, although after these I am working on my cookie decorating skills. There are just so many cute things you can make with cookies. Since I am not a cookie expert I know you can make these even if you are a cookie decorating newbie! If you know someone that loves pizza these are really cute to make for them. Also they can be my heart belongs to pizza(because really it does) for a Galentines Day party. I may be sing but I have pizza so I’m good. Plus I can eat pizza in my pjs looking like a hot mess and no one can judge me. It’s the little pleasures in life like that I enjoy. I made these cookies with sugar cookies and red and white royal icing.
I have a lot of holiday parties coming up so I am in decorating, cookie and dessert land. I thought it would be cute if there were cookies hanging from the tree that people could have at a party or to take home after. They are decorations and food all in one! I haven’t mastered the art of cookie making yet. I am determined to learn how to make cute cookies but for now I am a complete beginner. Despite my lack of decorating skills if you put it in an ornament viola they are adorable! The power of presentation. You can wrap them up in cellophane bags too and hand them out to friends for their own little ornament cookie.
