Sugar Cookie Cups

 Sugar cookie cup filled with strawberries whipped cream and chocolate shavings 

I saw a picture of these wonderful little beauties somewhere on the internet, and I knew I had to try them. These little edible bowls could be filled with so many different things. I chose fresh strawberries, whipped topping, and shaved chocolate.


To make them, you mix up a batch of sugar cookies, the kind with the rolled dough, not drop cookies. Roll them out to about 1/8 inch thick. Use the top of a large glass or mug to cut circles out of the cookie dough. Place the circles on the BOTTOM side of a greased muffin pan that's turned upside down, and gently fold them down around the sides. Bake them for about 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven, and let them cool down quite a bit before trying to remove them. It also helps to take a knife and loosen the edges a bit around the bottom. Be gentle, they will come off. Let them cool completely, and then fill with whatever your little heart desires! Great for Valentines day, or any party or celebration.

A few other ideas for filling would be fresh raspberries with shaved white chocolate, or freshly sliced apples drizzled with a caramel syrup, and, of course, vanilla ice cream couldn't hurt either!       YUM

Thanks Lori. I'm going to give it a try for both recipes. I think I have all the ingredients except for the cocoa and the crushed ice. I have an electric ice cream maker that hasn't bee used in a couple years but should be up to the job. I hope.

Nebraska Dave, this is my Grandma's homemade ice cream recipe for chocolate. 2 cups sugar,5 TBSP cocoa powder, 2 TBSP vanilla, 3 eggs, 2/3 tsp salt, 2 cans of evaporated milk, 2/3 quart of regular milk. mix all ingredients together. (dissolve cocoa powder in a little hot water for easier mixing) For vanilla ice cream, add 2 TBSP flour in place of the cocoa powder. Put mixture in ice cream freezer and freeze.

Lori, yeah, my grandson has been after me to make some icecream too. You wouldn't happen to have an icecream recipe laying around would you?

Nebraska Dave, Funny you should mention ice cream. My dad asked me if I could make him a year's supply of these to go with his ice cream. Problem is, these bowls aren't quite big enough for the number of scoops he uses! :)

Lori, what a interesting concept to turn the muffin pans upside down and wrap the dough around the bottom of the pan. That would be a perfect solution for my grandson's daily scoop of icecream after dinner. He would love eating the bowl. I'm with Cindy though. It's a good thing the blogs are calorie free. It's a good thing Spring is coming and the activity level increases. Have a great winter kitchen cooking day.

The actual food isn't calorie free...unfortunately for me! I can't help myself, I see these yummy looking recipes and I have to give them a try! I saw a filled, baked spaghetti bread somewhere that looked absolutely dreamy! It will be making it's debut here in the near future.....OH MY HIPS!

You have got to stop, Lori!! It's a darned good thing your blogs are calorie-free, and your photos don't contain calories! Those little sugar cookie cups just look too good to stop at one. And just kidding, btw, on stopping.....I eat vicariously through your posts; keep them coming!
