Instructions Checklist

  • Scoop up 2 teaspoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place the ball in the prepared tin. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.

  • Dip the bottom of a shot glass in flour and use to press each ball of dough into a cup shape; the top of each cup should be about 1/4 inch below the rim of the tin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Press again with the shot glass to reinforce the cup shape. Continue baking cookie cups until very lightly browned, about 1 minute more. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer carefully to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Beat butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, until well blended. Add coconut milk and coconut extract; beat at high speed until frosting is light and fluffy. Add 1 tablespoon coconut milk if frosting is too thick.

  • Spoon or pipe frosting into each cookie cup. Decorate with colored sugar, candy sprinkles, and shredded coconut.

I used store bought cookie mix baked it by the tablespoon full in a mini muffin tin undercooked it ever so slightly & used the end of my French rolling pin to compress the center into a cup shape. Then I filled the cups with Swiss meringue buttercream flavored coconut and dipped them in toasted coconut flakes. Such a cute idea and a big hit both times I ve made them. Thank you for sharing!

The idea is adorable, however the frosting is super sweet and with the sugar cookie cup makes it a little too much to handle. I changed up the way it was put together by filling the shallow cups with shredded coconut adding just a little frosting on top and drizzling melted chocolate over the top to keep everything together.
