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
