Cookie Cups


Tell me something. If someone offered you one of these. Would you turn it down? I sure wouldn’t! Hold on tight because your about to have an AHA! moment.  Guess what these are?? Cookie Cups! That’s it! plain and simple! Just the way I like it! Seriously, your not going to believe how simple! Check it out.


First your going to want to whip up a batch of your favorite cookie dough. I used  a nice traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made sure to use Milk Chocolate chips instead of semi sweet because we are going to ice these later and I didn’t want them overly sweet, but you might and that’s ok too!



Now grease you a MINI Cupcake Pan. (oops I originally typed a “mini cupcake MAN”  , if you can find you one of those, go ahead and grease him up real good too 😉  I always use Baker’s joy spray to grease my pans



now take a spoon full of cookie dough and drop it in the pan. spread it out so that the dough covers the bottom and the sides of each opening, leaving an open well in the middle.




Repeat the process until the entire pan is full. I only filled each opening about half way up the sides to allow for rising



Bake at 350 degree’s for about 10 min. or until the tops are brown



let them sit for a min before popping them out of the pan. While they cool, the middles will fall,. This is good! we want this. If some don’t fall, you can always give them a little poke.



When they are cool, pipe on some icing, and wallah! there you have it, iced cookie cups! ( I used my Chocolate buttercream icing on these)  I told you it was that easy!  You can come up will all kinds of delicious combinations! Next time I make these I’m going to try it with Cream cheese frosting. YUM!



Make these today!!

    This is so exciting! Is the center softer?

  2. Judy Says:

    the center isn’t “uncooked” but it’s not crispy either. with it being slightly hollow, the icing can go down the middle, and yes the cookie that is there in the middle is softer than the outside, like a soft cookie, so I guess the answer would be yes 😉 lol .
