YIELD Makes 12 cookies


1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
All-purpose flour (optional)
Prepared pudding, nondairy whipped topping, maraschino cherries, jelly beans, assorted sprinkles and small candies


  1. Grease 12 (2-3/4-inch) muffin cups.
  2. Remove dough from wrapper according to package directions. Sprinkle dough with flour to minimize sticking, if necessary.
  3. Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; roll into balls. Place 1 ball in bottom of each muffin cup. Press dough halfway up sides of muffin cups, making indentation in centers.
  4. Freeze muffin cups 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  5. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cookies will be puffy. Remove from oven; gently press indentations with teaspoon.
  6. Return to oven 1 to 2 minutes. Cool cookies in muffin cups 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.
  7. Fill each cookie cup with desired fillings. Decorate as desired.
Add some pizzazz to your cookie cups by filling with a mixture of prepared fruit-flavored gelatin combined with prepared pudding or nondairy whipped topping. For convenience, snack-size gelatins and puddings can be found at the supermarket, so there is no need to make them from scratch.
