Swig Cookies - A Copy

Swig Cookies
They are the rage here in Utah right
now with Swig stores opening up
all over and copy cat stores opening
up just as fast.

They are a traditional sugar cookie
using a touch of cream of tartar 
and powdered sugar so they melt in
your mouth.  They serve them cold
and frost them right as they come out
of the cold and it hardens the frosting.
Swig also is popular for
Dirty Docs
a Dr. Pepper with added Torani's
Coconut Syrup.

To tell you the truth, the first time
I made them I didn't like them so I
put them on a platter and sent them off
to work with Hubby.  I kept getting texts
from work saying how much they liked them.

Later my daughter made some and I really
liked them.  Alot!  I ate three in one
sitting.  She thought maybe I had used
low fat sour cream in the frosting (and 
that was probably right as I usually have 
that on hand rather than full fat - watching
the fat where I can!!!)

The frosting has sour cream and salt in it.  She only added
1/4 tsp. of salt where the recipe adds 1 tsp.  
I especially
would not want that much salt and I loved hers
so I am going to stick with 1/4 tsp salt in the frosting.

Vintage Revivals has asked that no one
print her recipe on the web so I am going to send
you over to her site to get the cookie and frosting
recipe.  Click here.

I also made them as rolled cookies
and they were good.

I also want to try the basic
cookie with an almond flavored
buttercream - yum!

But if you are looking for a 
Swig Cookie
the experts tell me these are great.

They are supposed to be cold too,
but I prefer mine room temperature,
although with the sour cream frosting
you will need to store them in the fridge.

Bake up a batch and enjoy them!

I will be posting these with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. I pinned the recipe from Vintage Revivals a while ago, but have not tried them yet. Yours look great! I have a daughter that lives in Southern Utah, so I will stop in St. George on the way to see her next time and try the real deal:)

  2. These look pretty tempting and the pink icing makes them look pretty.

  4. Sounds yummy and looks pretty.

  5. I would be happy to try one! Something different and they look so pretty.

  6. Wishing I had a stack of these right now. Yum!
    I'm headed over for the recipe. Thanks!

  7. I've never heard of these but they look really good.

  8. I need to earmark these-I am a sucker for these cookies. They are the only non-homemade cookies I eat.
