Rose swirl cookies are fancy looking and perfect to have with tea. These cookies 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.

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. đŸ™‚

Easy Rose Swirl Cookies

I worked a few summers at cupcake bakery. It was a great job for a foodie like me. The job was not just any cupcake bakery…it was at Cupcakes by Heather and Lori (from the Food Network show The Cupcake Girls!!). During the summers working at Cupcakes gave me the experience I needed to pursue my passion for baking further and inspired me to get more creative on my blog!! It is safe to say I learned a LOT about making buttercream and icing cupcakes.

Icing the Rose Swirl on the Cookie

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. For this recipe, I went with the Simply Made Butter and Sandies.
