Cookie Dough Cups

Ok y'all, I recently made these cookie cups for a dinner party, and they were so much fun to make!!  Honestly if you just look at the picture above, you might be able to guess exactly what they are (cookie cups) and how I made them.  BUT, for anyone out there that would like to know the step-by-step of how I made these precious bite-sized treats, keep reading!!!

First of all, I was inpsired by this website   (from my Pinterest of course), and I pretty much just followed her recipe.  For the actual cookie dough, I used this recipe

I first made the dough, and then just baked some regular size cookies on a cookie sheet.  Then I got out my mini muffin tin and divided the rest of the batter among the cups (about 1/2 TBSP each). 
(I sprayed the pan first w/ Pam, if you can't tell by the pic....I kinda got carried away! Ha!)

So I baked them at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Once the cookie cups are baked, and before they are cooled, press the back of a tablespoon into the cookie, creating a shallow "bowl." 

Once they've cooled, remove the cookie cups from the tin and fill with whatever kind of yumminess your heart desires!!  I just used regular canned frosting, and used a fancy frosting tip to fill them. Some others ideas to fill them with are: frosting, chocolate, peanut butter, ganache, caramel, nutella.

I sprinkled some peanut butter chips on top to jazz them up a little and, TA-DA!  Bite-sized cookie cups!
(P.S.  I truly believe that when something is bite-sized, the calories don't count.  Anyone with me?  ;)

Enjoy!! Happy Hump Day!
