Copycat Swig Sugar Cookies | *BEST* Version

This post may contain affiliate sales links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Thick, soft and sweet, you will DIE over how good these Copycat Swig Sugar Cookies are! These pressed cookies are made with really common pantry ingredients, are softly baked to keep them tender and frosted with a light pink buttercream. Faster to make than my cut-out sugar cookies and scooped directly onto the baking sheet like my Chewy Sugar Cookies.

Thick and Delicious Swig Sugar Cookies!

During my college days, Swig Sugar Cookies were the thing. Incase you have no idea what I’m talking about or have never heard of Swig, it is a soda stand in Arizona, Utah and Idaho that happens to serve cookies along with their soda concoctions. Year after year, they became popular because of these pressed sugar cookies that were thick and soft with light pink frosting. While they have great soda pop, they are known for their Sugar Cookies.

A True Copycat

While there are lots of copycat recipes out there, some calling for random ingredients like sour cream, it is not a true Swig Sugar Cookie copycat! Through some friends, I was able to get a copy of the ingredients list and since legally they have to list all the ingredients in order from most to least, I was able to figure out a basic recipe to work from. Then from there, I was able to make small tweaks to get these tasting as close to the original as possible. I hope you find that to be true as well! (This is exactly the method I used to create my Cinnabon Clone and we all know how much you love that recipe ? )
