If you’re looking for a fun and simple dessert for Easter, think about serving Cookie Cups. The kids (and young at heart) will love them!
Start with sugar cookie dough (either homemade our from the store). Roll it out and cut into circles, then form the circles over an oven-proof container like custard cups to bake.
I used silicone cupcake pans to form my cups. Just press them around the outside and bake with the cups upside down.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until lightly browned then cool. You can form a handle out of dough. Just roll a rope of dough and bend it in a handle shape and bake along with the cups.
You can fill the cups with whatever your heart desires. I made ours like fruit pizza with a sweet cream cheese filling and fruit.
Put a thick ring of whipped cream around the top if you want to add a handle and stick it into the whipped cream to hold it upright.
You can also make mini cookie cups. Just form them on the back of a mini cupcake or muffin tin.
Cook until lightly browned then cool.
I colored coconut green to look like grass.
And filled the mini cookie cups.
Then topped with jelly beans. This would be fun to mark each place setting or as a little take-away treat if you are the host for Easter dinner.
She Who Wishes You All a Very Happy Easter!
