    We regularly put cookies into ice cream and use waffle cones as a dish, so why not make the cookie into the bowl?

    I originally saw someone attempting to do a chocolate chip cookie cup on Pinterest, however my initial attempts failed (with dough melted all over my oven). So I moved on to my next best idea.

    I was able to succeed with sugar cookie dough, which if well mixed, will hold its shape fairly well during baking. Therefore making it the ideal cookie dough to use for this!

    Why an inverted muffin pan you ask? Because the thickness of the dough takes away from space in the cup- you do want more ice cream, don’t ya?

    Here I pictured two varieties, glazed and un-glazed. The glazed tends to work better because it creates a barrier from the cookie to ice cream allowing the cookie to maintain its consistency and not get soggy.

    You can decorate the outside however just as you would a regular sugar cookie before baking. Another bonus to this recipe, this sugar cookie dough doesn’t require chilling!

    Sugar cookie cups are great for those days where ice cream on its own just isn’t enough. They don’t even take long to make which means you won’t be slaving around the kitchen all day.

    As well as they’re utterly delicious! Just scoop your favorite ice cream right into the center of the cup and top it with whatever your heart desires. You’ll be thanking me later trust me.
