There is something you should know about me. I love fountain soda. I am a drink girl through and through. Here in Utah, over the last couple years, all my dreams of soda fountain shops have come true, as the craze for fountain soda concoctions has swept my area. Little soda shops have been popping up all over, almost like we lived in the 50’s or something.
One of these shops is called Swig. I am pretty sure they started the craze, and many followed. The one closest to me, Fiiz, is my favorite. Maybe because of proximity. Anyway, these soda shops also have these tasty sugar cookies. They serve them chilled, and they have a sour cream frosting that is yummy!
So today, I am sharing a copy cat recipe for these cookies, along with a way you can have fountain soda right from your home.
Now there are a lot of copy cat versions of this cookie floating around, and my version is not so different. I tried a bunch of them, and kind of mished and mashed them, adding a little of this and that to get one that I liked best. I can’t claim they are perfect, but my family loves them, and gobbles them up every time I make them. The trick is to get that messy, crinkled edge by using a glass to smash the cookies flat, and to serve them chilled.
If you can do that, there is no need to head out to Swig, or Fiiz, or Slurp, or any other little shop. You can have a perfectly chilled craft soda from the Keurig KOLD, and the copy cat cookie, without ever having to leave your house, or admit how much you love these fountain drinks!
The Keurig Kold is pretty neat. It doesn’t require CO2 canisters, it has this awesome technology that uses innovative Karbonator™ beads to give you a fresh made drink every time! It takes about 90 seconds to get the drink, and each pod gives you about 8 ounces. But they are perfectly chilled, with just the right amount of bubbles. It is like getting fountain soda right at home! You can learn more about the technology and the pod flavors here. However, there are all your classic favorites, plus some awesome ones like Spiced Rootbeer, and Orange Cream, and even makes Margaritas.
Now, when my kids are sleeping, or it is a crazy day and I can’t get out of the house, I don’t have to leave to get my soda shop fix, I can just head into the kitchen and pretty the start button to get a freshly made soda. And since, these cookies are best served chilled, I just whip up a big batch and freeze them so I have them on hand when I want them.
My kids are crazy for the cookies and the Keurig Kold. I had the Keurig shipped to me, and my kids could not stop asking if it had come yet. Every. Single. Day. When it finally arrived, it was torture for them to wait the 2 hours it takes for the initial set up. But now they are so excited about it, they ask daily if they can “make a soda”.
My daughter’s birthday is coming up, and she wants to do a movie night where the girls can make their own sodas, and eat popcorn and watch old movies. I thought that was a great idea, and all of her friends are fascinated by the idea of getting to make soda with the Keurig. So that is awesome.
So be sure to check out the Keurig KOLD and available pods, and make yourself a batch of these sugar cookies! Mmmmm
