Cookies studded with Skittles and sandwiched between a strawberry, blueberry & vanilla frosting
Out of this world amazing. So good I could open my own food truck.
These were my thoughts the first time I made Pretzel Dogs. But since then, it’s been hit or miss if I can recreate that first perfect lunch.
The same goes for a variety of recipes like Whole Wheat Bread and Chai Tea. One recipe that never fails me though is my go-to cookie. Most of my cookie recipes are all based off the same perfected formula.
So, when I was selected to create a recipe featuring Skittles America Mix I knew where to start. I folded Skittles into the dough and then created a frosting featuring Strawberry, Blueberry and Vanilla flavors. The America Mix variety of Skittles is perfect for summer. The festive colors make it easy to create the best treat.
To create frostings, first you’ll create an easy jam. Simply bring berries to a boil and then cook until reduced. Smash berries while cooking. Then set the jams aside and allow to cool to room temperature.
Next, make cookies. I recommend having all ingredients ready, so you can quickly assemble dough. Once dough is complete, roll into equal balls. I love to use a scale so I can be precise. Flatten balls and decorate with extra Skittles. Reshape cookies, if necessary, by lightly pressing on edges. Cookies will be puffy and have crinkles. They may look a little underdone, but will complete cooking while cooling on pan. Allow cookies to reach room temperature.
Once you are ready to assemble cookies, make frosting. Once the initial batch is complete, equally divide frosting among three bowls. Add jams to frosting and beat until fluffy. To achieve swirled frosting, I used Wilton’s Color Swirl 3-Color Coupler. Assemble coupler with bags before adding frosting. Carefully transfer frosting to prepared piping bags. Swirl one cookie with frosting and then top with another cookie. & voila! your Skittles Cookie Sandwich is ready to be devoured 😉
