Ask most people what their favorite cookie is and they will most likely say chocolate chip.
I on the other hand am a sugar cookie girl (for the record so is my dog), so, thus was born the Sugar Cookie Cups.
Ever since I was a kid, sugar cookies have always been my go-to cookie. Oh, how I used to love to go to the grocery store with my mom and then nag her until I could wear her down enough to buy me a frosted sugar cookie from the bakery. Though I must admit that I don’t even make it to the actual cookie making process some days. Some days it’s just me, my flannel PJ’s, bad TV (think Real Housewives) and a tube of cookie dough. Don’t judge. It’s just the perfect food to try and make a crappy day get better.
One thing I love to do with cookie dough is turn them into Sugar Cookie Cups. They are such a fun way to deviate from just putting out a plate of cookies at your party. There are an endless amount (well there probably is an end) of things to do with them. Obviously you can put ice cream into them and make a spin on the classic ice cream cookie sandwich. You can fill it with mini cookies (done that and people think it is way cute). You can be on the healthy side and just fill them with fruit. Or you can do with I did and fill it with no bake cheesecake filling and top with fruit. Yum!
Roll out the sugar cookie dough. These can get a little tricky. The key is to make sure you get really sturdy muffin/cupcake cups. You can usually find them at a craft store or kitchen store. Even when you roll them out (which I do) they will shrink up in the cup. DO NOT PANIC.
Once they are baked you simply take a spoon to them while they are still hot and soft and form a well in them for the filling to go into.
You will get the hang of it in no time and these will be something that you can use again and again.
