If you are looking for a unique dessert to serve to your wedding guests, check out these sugar cookie tacos! You can either have them completely assembled and plated or you can serve them up as a taco bar and let guest build their own.
Take 3 plastic bags and add 1 cup of shredded coconut to each bag. In one bag, add 2-3 drops of orange food coloring for the cheese (or rice) and in the other bag, add 2-3 drops of green food coloring (the lettuce). Shake each bag to evenly to coat the coconut with color.
Next, crumble brownie bites (or chocolate cake) into mini crumbles for the meat.
For the tomatoes, you can use a range of items – basically any round red candy works (i.e. m&m’s, sixlets, red sours, etc.). Make sure to have your frosting prepped and ready to go as well. Set all toppings aside.
Taco Shell Cookies:
Now for the cookies. Place dough in rounds on a baking sheet. Bake sugar cookie dough at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes (just before it turns slightly golden). Remove and let cookies sit for 1-2 minutes to ever-so-slightly cool and then immediately mold each cookie over a rolling pin (or any wax-covered tubular shape). If you’re finding that the cookies are falling apart when you go to mold them, decrease your baking time and/or resting time out of the oven. Wait until the cookie shells have completely cooled on mold before removing and decorating. To speed this up, you can place your mold directly into the fridge after the cookies have cooled for 10 minutes at room temperature.
To decorate: add buttercream frosting (sour cream), coconut (lettuce + cheese), brownie bites (meat), and the red M&Ms (tomatoes).
