Bite-sized Cookie Cups are perfect for birthday celebrations and impromptu parties. Refrigerated sugar cookie dough is baked up in a mini muffin tin, frosted with irresistible buttercream and garnished with colorful rainbow sprinkles. These soft and chewy Cookie Cups are one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make!
When you’re short on time, these cute Cookie Cups make the perfect party treat. The recipe starts with pre-made sugar cookie dough, with sprinkles added in for a festive look. The funfetti dough is rolled into balls and baked up in a Sweet Creations Textured 24-Cup Nonstick Mini Muffin/Cupcake Pan until golden.
While the cookies are still hot, indent each cup with the end of a fondant roller or with the back of a GoodCook Touch Stainless Steel Measuring Tablespoon.
The frosting comes together quickly and easily. Whip softened butter with electric beaters or in a stand-up mixer, adding vanilla in at the end. Start adding in powdered sugar one cup at a time. Adjust the sweetness to your liking, adding more powdered sugar by the cup if it’s not sweet enough. For a silky smooth texture, add milk, one teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
It’s easy to frost these cookie cups with a GoodCook OodleTip Decorating Bag. Simply scoop the frosting into an OodleTip Decorating Bag and snip the tip with kitchen shears before frosting. Pipe onto each cookie cup and dispose of the bag when finished. That’s it—there’s no mess and no fuss with the OodleTip Decorating Bag!
Top with bright and colorful sprinkles and get ready to celebrate. We can’t think of a more fun and delightful treat!
