the CupCookie

Introducing….Looks like a cupcake. Tastes like a cookie. See? Cookies. That look like mini cupcakes. (And no, I didn’t actually trademark the cupcookie. Those are my initials.)

to make cupcookies you will need:*
1 3/8 inch circle cutter
1 frosting bag
1 coupler

1 star tip

1 rubber band

white food coloring
sprinkles and red dragees
Wilton mini baking cups

*You can use any frosting you like, but it should be stiff enough to hold its shape when piped. (Add confectioner’s sugar to pretty much any frosting to make it stiffer.) Find the cutter and supplies at the craft store. I used the Wilton mini baking cups because the cookies fit so nicely in them and the sides stood up well. Click HERE for tips on finding supplies.

step one: bake your cookies
Roll out chilled cookie dough and cut out small circles. You will need two per cupcookie. Bake and let cool.

step two: frost your cookies
Prepare any frosting of your choice and tint white. Fill a decorating bag fitted with a coupler and a star tip and tie closed with a rubber band. Pipe a dollop of frosting on a cookie and top with another cookie. Then pipe frosting on top of the stack. Start in the center, move out to the edge and pipe round and round, smaller and smaller, until you come to a point at the top. Sprinkle with sprinkles and add a red dragee if desired.

step three: make your cupcookies
Plop the stack in a mini baking cup and you’re done.

    umm.. OMG What a CUTE idea. It kinda reminds me of a cookie sandwich…ya know. Except you've taken the cookie sandwich thing and made it like 10,000 X more awesome. The cupcake idea is SO cute I think I'm going to have to try those…like today. I mean cookie + icing + cookie = good…. cookie + icing + cookie + EVEN MORE DELICIOUS ICING?! = EXCELLENT!!!!
