HowTo Make Ice Cream Cookie Cups

Start by preheating the oven according to the directions on the cookie package.

To make the cookie cups, we use the outside bottom of the muffin tins to shape the cups! Flip the muffin tin upside down and spray the outside with cooking spray.

Pour the sprinkles into a small bowl and dip each cookie dough piece in the sprinkles to make sure it’s completely sprinkle-fied.

Then, place each cookie piece on top of the bottom of the muffin tin.

Bake in the oven, following the same instructions on packaging.

When it’s done, remove from oven and make sure to let it cool completely and solidifies into the cup shape.

  2. Are these mini muffin tins? Do you shape the cookie dough down around the tin? Love your idea and can’t wait to try it.

    1. Hi Kathy! These are actually normal size muffin tins. No need to shape the cookie dough, just let it sit on top! The cookie will drop naturally around the edges :).
