This recipe for sugar cookie cups is super simple and another easy way to add a little festive treat for your next party or get together.
We found a mouse had been trying to eat some plastic on a knife in our utensil drawer. So when I was cleaning everything, I came across this little wooden tart shaper that I have had for many years, and hardly ever use. Since I was getting ready to bake some sugar cookies for the holidays, this mini shaper gave me the idea to try and make sugar cookie cups.
I used refrigerated sugar cookie dough to save time which made about 3 dozen cookies, but you could certainly use your own recipe.
They did tend to stick a little to the bottom which is why I suggest spraying the pan with vegetable oil, and make sure that you let them cool first. Use a knife around the edges to help remove the cups from the pan. I stuck to traditional colored frosting for the holidays, but you could place a different filling in the middle, such as a chocolate kiss or jam. Dress them up further with sprinkles or edible glitter. Lots of different ways to make them fun and oh so yummy.
