Rose swirl cookies are fancy looking and perfect to have with tea. They are so pretty….almost too pretty to eat! Truth be told, they are actually super-duper easy especially when you use a Keebler cookie for the base. I made two packages of cookies into the rose swirl cookies in only 20 minutes.
Tea parties are something that I have been having since I was a young girl. What young child doesn’t? Everyone know that the best part of the tea party is the cookies. Am I right?!?
Making these extra special rose swirl cookies doesn’t take long at all and the result is spectacular.
A little Bella Bucchiotti tea party…whether with real tea or just using my imagination…was always a lovely affair. As you can see, eight year old Bella clearly had a thing for fancy beverages. 🙂

I worked a few summers at cupcake bakery. It was a great job for a foodie like me. It was not just any cupcake bakery…it was at Cupcakes by Heather and Lori (from the Food Network show The Cupcake Girls!!). It is safe to say that during those summers I learned a LOT about making buttercream and icing cupcakes.
- Keebler cookies
- 1 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 6 to 8 Cups Icing sugar
- ½ Cup milk
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- Food Gel Colors
- In bowl of mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until smooth.
- With mixer on low speed add 6 cups of the icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix until fluffy.
- If necessary, slowly add more icing sugar to get to desired consistency.
- Divide buttercream into bowls and colour with gel, mixing completely.
To make the icing rose swirl on the cookie follow these easy steps:
- Fit a piping bag with a large star or flower tip.
- Starting at the center of a cookie, with tip perpendicular to the cookies, begin piping.
- Continue to pipe in an outward swirl until icing covers most of the cookie.
- Repeat with remaining cookies.
I picked up the Keebler cookies that I used for the rose swirl cookies at my local Fred Meyer. Any round variety will work. I use both the Simply Made Butter and Sandies.
