This recipe came about as a total accident. When I was a teenager, I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies in mini muffin pans, but the centers sank in. In a pinch, I filled the centers with icing and voila! The cookie cup. My friends would beg me to make these every week.

  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.

  • Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

  • Drop rounded tablespoons of the dough into the prepared mini muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are light golden brown, 9 to 12 minutes. Cool before removing from the pans.

  • Meanwhile, beat shortening, butter, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer in a mixing bowl. Beat in confectioners' sugar gradually, 1 cup at a time. Beat in milk until icing is smooth. Add a little more milk if icing is still dry.

  • Fill the center of each cooled cookie cup with icing.
