Pumpkin Swig Cookies absolutely need to make their way to the top of your fall baking list! Bliss in every bite!
Have you ever had the pleasure of eating a Swig cookie? If you’re from or have ever visited Utah or Arizona you may know what I’m referring to. Swig is a little cookie and drink shop. The so-called “swig” cookie is their signature dessert. Because I don’t live near a Swig store, I’ve made many Swig copycat cookies. All are so delicious and taste just like the real deal. The Swig cookie is a thick, soft, frosted sugar cookie with phenomenal texture, thanks to a few non-traditional sugar cookie ingredients.
Today’s offering is the pumpkin version of a Swig cookie. As in, a perfect pumpkin sugar cookie. I can’t even begin to tell you how phenomenal these are! The dough balls are rolled in sugar, then pressed and baked to soft perfection. After cooling, they cookies are iced with the most incredible frosting. Don’t be alarmed by the sour cream or salt in the frosting. Yes, they are critical ingredients in the making of an icing that is not like any that you’ve ever tasted, and one that you certainly won’t be able to soon forget. In fact, I think and dream about this frosting quite regularly.
These cookies are the reason I was able to make it through another week of distance learning with my kids. Yes, I rewarded myself with cookies during stressful times when kids were being uncooperative or technology was once again failing us. Or when the assignment list seemed too daunting to tackle, a cookie made everything better.
Do I have any regrets? None whatsoever. This is such a weird and challenging year in so many ways. If a cookie can solve my problems, even for a moment, then I’ll let it.
When I shared a series of stories on Instagram of the process of me creating these, you all were so excited to enjoy them for yourself. So make it happen! 🙂 You certainly won’t regret it.
