“Cheeseburger” Cookies

“Cheeseburger” Cookies

No time to bake? Maybe too hot? Here is a fun and easy no-bake dessert, that is perfect for any picnic or cook out. This is also a nice dessert for kids to make. They are great when you agreed to bring a dessert- and realize you have no time to make something from scratch. Fun dessert for the 4th.

The “burgers” are super fast to assemble. Vanilla wafers are the buns, and small, chocolate cookies are the burgers. I usually use chocolate mint cookies. You can also use thin mints, instead of the cookies. The “cheese” is orange tinted frosting. The “lettuce” is made from tinting coconut green.

To finish off the look, brush the tops of the cookies with a thinned out powdered sugar icing (not tinted), and sprinkle on a few sesame seeds.

They really do look like little burgers.

Cheeseburger Cookies

1 package vanilla wafer cookies
1 package Keebler Grasshopper cookies, or other small chocolate cookies
2 c. powdered sugar
1- 2 T. milk
few drops of yellow and red food coloring
1 c. coconut
several drops of green food coloring
1/4 c. powder sugar
1 T. milk
sesame seeds

Combine 2 cups of powder sugar with the milk and red and yellow food coloring. This should be the color of cheese. Place the coconut in a small bag and add a few drops of green food coloring. Close the bag and shake well to evenly color. This will be the ‘lettuce’.
To assemble cookies use 2 vanilla wafers (the bun) and one chocolate cookie (the burger). The orange frosting works as the cheese and glue. The coconut is the lettuce. Place a vanilla wafer flat side up on work surface. Place a little dab of “cheese” on the vanilla cookie and then a chocolate cookie. Sprinkle a little coconut on the burger, then some more cheese and the top bun, flat side down. Combine the remaining powder sugar and milk. You should have a thin glaze. Brush this lightly on the top of the finished “burgers”. Sprinkle with a few sesame seeds. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
