Raspberry Rose Cookies

Ever since I saw these BEAUTIFUL neapolitan cookies from “i am baker,” I have wanted to make them!

The COOL thing about those cookies is that they look just like spritz cookies BUT they were actually made with Wilton decorating tips rather than a spritz cookie press tool.

I thought that was GENIUS and I finally got a chance to make them yesterday.

I made a ROSE design, using Wilton’s star tip and a SPIRAL design, using Wilton’s french tip.

Since it’s Summer, I wanted to make these cookies FRUITY and I did that by adding flavorings, zests and fruit powders.

The rose cookies were RASPBERRY flavored and the spiral ones were ORANGE flavored.

Hubby COULDN’T stop eating the raspberry ones! lol

By the way, if you have NEVER used emulsion oils and fruit powders in your recipes, you DON’T  know what you are MISSING out!

They ADD so much depth and freshness to cakes, cupcakes, cookies and all types of baked goods!

You can easily find them on Amazon.

These CRISPY cookies have a rich BUTTERY flavor.

They are also great for GIFT GIVING during Christmas time.

Put them in a fancy box and wrap a nice ribbon around it and voila… a beautiful HOMEMADE gift! 😀

I was reading up on Spritz cookies and found out that they were very POPULAR back in the day, especially during the holidays.

Their popularity seems to have declined over the years though… I am not sure why! :S

I still think they have a classy, elegant and VINTAGE feel to them… Don’t you agree?! 🙂

    These look amazing and so delicious! My biggest downfall is putting on the frosting when I’m baking, but I’ll have to give these ones a go and see how I do.

      Frosting is my weakness too… especially chocolate buttercream! But, these cookies are so flavorful that you don’t really need frosting 🙂

      I am sure you can make these pretty rose shapes too. My first few were not that great but I got the hang of it after making 5 or 6 🙂
