Peaches and Cream Cookies

Kelly Schulte Recipe

By Kelly Schulte MrsSchulte


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.

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!


1 c
vegetable oil
3 tsp
baking powder
1 c
4 c
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
3 Tbsp
stick margerine softened

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat eggs slightly, then add oil, baking powder, flour and sugar. Mix well and refrigerate overnight or for several hours.
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.
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.
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.
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

I'm wondering how a little peach flavoring would be? Or maybe skip the vermouth and use peach schnapps? Might have to give these a try!

If baked, yes its true, the alcohol evaporates. But it looks like in this recipe the Sweet Vermouth is added after the baking process.

Any suggestions of what to do with the "scooped out" part of the cookie???

Even if the vermouth were in the cookies for the baking process the alcohol wouldn't *completely* bake out anyway. It is a full cup of vermouth. That's quite a bit.

And yes, I do wonder at the peach part of the name if you don't add peach flavouring to the cookies. Otherwise this sounds interesting.

I think they are called Peaches and Cream because, well, they look like peaches and are full of cream! Anyway.. I'm gonna make these and try the peach schnapps because I have some! And as far as the center of the cookie that is scooped out goes.. what better way to test the flavor than eating some?

Can anyone please tell me a substitute for the Vermouth as we do not allow alcohol in our home! What is the purpose of this anyway?

I hope someone posts how the peach schnapps works! For anyone not wanting alcohol in the cookie, but looking for natural peach flavor, check out the website for Pure Joy Planet They carry essences by Medicine Flower that are wonderful, including a peach flavored one.

Kelly or anyone I was wondering how to substitute Vermouth for some other liquid such as maybe peach juice or ginger ale or crushed canned peaches?? I don't are for alcohol in my foods especially if children are around so much.
