Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can white frosting
  • gel food coloring
  • colorful candies
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place liners into mini muffin pan. 
  2. In medium bowl, combine sugar cookie mix, butter, and egg. Drop by tablespoonful into 24 lined mini muffin cups (should put a little over 1 tablespoon of dough in each mini muffin cup.)
  3. Press dough evenly into muffin cups. Use the back of a round-backed measuring spoon or a melon baller to make a shallow well in the center of each cookie.
  4. Bake cookies about 10 minutes until slightly browned. Cool completely.
  5. Divide can of white frosting into four small bowls. Add 1-2 drops of gel food coloring into each bowl and stir to make your desired shades. 
  6. Spoon each color of frosting into separate zip-top baggies. Snip the tip of the baggie and pipe the colored frosting into the middle of each cooled cookie. 
  7. Press colorful candies into the top of each Sugar Cookie Cup.
Key to Success #1 – Use Cookie Mix Shortcut
Cookie mixes and refrigerated cookie dough are a great time-saver during the holiday season. Fast prep food products have come a long way as far as taste. I think the Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Mix tastes a lot like homemade.

If you have a favorite cookie dough recipe, you can absolutely use it in these Easter Sugar Cookie Cups. You’ll still want to use a little over 1 tablespoon of dough in each mini muffin cup.

Mini muffin liners are optional with these Sugar Cookie Cups but I recommend them just to make things neater. You can use a holiday-themed liner, but I used these grease-proof parchment liners. Have you seen these? If you’ve never tried them, they really are grease-proof and they work great.

Key to Success #2 – Make a Well
When you put the cookie dough into the mini muffin cups, you’ll want to use a little over 1 tablespoon of dough into each cup. I like to put a heaping tablespoon of dough into each cup then go back and fill in any that look a little low with the remaining dough.

After your dough is distributed into the cups, go back and gently press the dough down so that the top is relatively smooth. It doesn’t have to be perfect! You just want it smooth enough so that you can make a well in the top of each Sugar Cookie Cup.

You can use a round-bottomed measuring spoon or the back of a melon baller to make a well in each Sugar Cookie Cup. I used the back of a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon to make a well. It doesn’t have to be deep, just enough to give you a place to put your frosting.

Key to Success #3 – White Frosting Makes The Prettiest Colors
White frosting, not vanilla frosting. A lot of times, vanilla frosting has a bit of a yellowish tint. You can certainly use vanilla frosting or even chocolate frosting, but the brightest colors are made with white frosting.

Again, you can use your favorite frosting recipe if you’d prefer. I used a can of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Classic White frosting and it worked great.

You only need a drop or two of gel food coloring to get bright colors. Choose your own adventure – there are so many pretty possibilities in food coloring these days.

The orange looking color in my picture is “egg yellow” – my helper went a little crazy with the food coloring on that one.

To make things easy, I just used a zip-top baggie to pipe my frosting into a pretty dollop on the top of each cookie. You can absolutely use a piping tip to make some fancy designs if you would prefer.

If you’re running low on time (or patience!) you can also just use a spoon to add the frosting. I think a baggie just gives you a little better control over where the frosting ends up.

By the way, those bag clips that you see in the photo above are Ikea brand but I got them on Amazon for less than $6.00 for a 30-pack! And they are fantastic.

They come in two sizes and we use them on everything – powdered sugar bags, chip bags, chocolate chip packages. I just ordered me some more because I can never have enough.

Don’t these Easter Sugar Cookie Cups make a pretty presentation? I just love all the colors. How will you decorate yours?
Please share this easy Easter Sugar Cookie Cups recipe with your friends.

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?

The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.
