Holy Cow, Memorial Day is almost here! And if you are like me, the long weekend totally snuck up on you and you may not have any time to prep for a last minute invite to a BBQ or party.
That's ok, these super simple treats can be thrown together in about 15 minutes. I'm not sure who first came up with frosting cookies, and stacking them, but it's pure genius. I love anything easy and cute, and these are most def both.
Start with some store bought cookies. Of course you can use home made if you just happen to be so inspired, but I always seem to have a packs of cookies laying around, you know, in case of emergency.
PLUS I found these gems at Trader Joes, Speculoos Cookies. How have I never had these before?? Crisp caramelized cinnamon spiced cookies? Heck yeah. AND they have such a cute little design on them. AND this is also the stuff they use to make cookie butter. Come on, Cookie Butter!!?
Start with some vanilla icing and tint some red and blue. Pipe onto the cookies. And sprinkles (optional). The End.
I used some homemade buttercream for this (I always seem to have some leftover in the freezer) but you can use store-bought too. The piping makes them look "fancier"!
Use any assortment of cookies you have around. Add some sprinkles. Sprinkles make me smile so I try to put them on everything. Don't put them on meat, meat + sprinkles is just weird.
These little cookie stacks even make a neat birthday treat in a pinch.
Happy Memorial Day to you all and I'll be thinking of all the women and men who have served and their families that have lost loved ones while in service. Enjoy the long weekend and be safe.
