Kelly's Story

I love making these fancy cookies for parties! These are an adults only cookie as they contain Sweet Vermouth. They are great for summer cook-outs! Peachy sweetness with southern flair.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Cute as a button! If you like vermouth you will LOVE these darling sweet treats... and so will your friends!

Ingredients

4
eggs
1 c
vegetable oil
3 tsp
baking powder
1 c
sugar
4 c
flour
1 box
vanilla pudding mix
1 c
sweet vermouth
1/4 tsp
orange food coloring
1/4 tsp
green food coloring
2 c
confectioners' sugar
2 tsp
milk
3 Tbsp
stick margerine softened

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat eggs slightly, then add oil, baking powder, flour and sugar. Mix well and refrigerate overnight or for several hours.
2
When your dough is cool. Roll it in your hands to make walnut sized balls or smaller. Place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes.

While these are baking, make your vanilla pudding according to the package directions.
3
When they have cooled, use a small melon baller to scoop out the centers of two balls and fill each in with a spoon of pudding. Put the two cookies together. Continue doing this until all of your pudding filled balls have been made.
4
In a bowl mix 1 cup of Sweet Vermouth and 1/4 tsp of orange food coloring. Dip each cookie into the Vermouth mixture and then set on a rack to drain, but do not let it dry. After each cookie sits on the rack for a minute or so, roll it in a bowl of granulated sugar, and set back on the rack to dry.
5
Now that you have your peaches, you are going to make a quick butter cream to pipe "leaves" onto the top of each one. Mix together your confectioner's sugar, butter, milk and green food coloring. Use a decorator bag and a leaf tip to pip one or two small green leaves at the top of each cookie.
After these have "set" I put them in fancy little paper cups for serving! Yumm

Don't know how much you paid - for it's usually around $3. Anyway, look at it this way - the extract will go further for lots of wonderful treats..., ; )

Duh, never thought of that, and all the grocery stores carry it. Oh well, already ordered the peach extract, but I truly do appreciate your suggestion. The nectar would be much cheaper too.

I used peach nectar in place of the Vermouth and they were fabulous.
