I’ve already told you guys one of my favorite Christmas memories from my childhood when I shared my Sugar Cookie recipe.  Sadly, I don’t always have the time to spend decorating them though. For being so little my 2 year old and 8 month old are very demanding on my time lately. A treat that I have found I can make quickly that always impresses and makes people happy are cookie cups!

These cookie cups are definite winners!  Sugar cookies topped with Frosted Sugar Cookie frosting?!  Genius! Even better, I made the frosting using one of my favorite coffee creamers.

Ingredients

  • Sugar Cookie dough, store bought mix or homemade

Frosting

  • ½ cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer
  • Sprinkles

Equipment

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with non stick baking spray. Set it aside.
  • Prepare the sugar cookie dough. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon scoop the sugar cokie dough into the tins. Using the back of the spoon press the dough into the tin.
  • Bake for 9-10 mins. The center will still seem slightly doughy. Press in the center with the back of the spoon again to create a crater in the middle, making the cup shape. Allow the cookie cups to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, then remove to continue cooling on a wire rack.

Frosting

  • Add the butter to mixing bowl. Beat over high speed until creamy.
  • Spoon in the powdered sugar and mix on low speed. Slowly add in the International Delight Frosted Sugar Coffee Creamer.
  • Mix over medium speed until mixture is smooth and forming peaks.
  • Add to piping bag and pipe onto cooled cookie cups. I used a Wilton 2D tip.
  • Top with sprinkles! Serve and enjoy.

Notes

If preparing ahead of time leave the cookie cups un-frosted and in a sealed container 2-3 days. Frosting can be kept in sealed bag in the refrigerator until piped onto the cookie cups.
