Ingredients for Apple Cookie Cups

  • 1 12-24 count Mini Muffin Pan
  • 1 package Sugar Cookie Dough
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 can Apple Pie Filling
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon

Ingredients for Icing

  • 4 tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • Water


Instructions for Apple Cookie Cups

  • Preheat oven 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 12-24 mini muffin pan with cooking spray. 
  • Follow the instructions on the sugar cookie package for drop cookies.
  • Roll dough into small balls. Place into muffin pan. We used dough that was cut into each cookie size and just rolled each cookie size into a ball.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Immediately remove from oven and press a shot glass into the cookie to make the opening. We sprayed the shot glass with cooking oil every few cups.
  • Place cookie cups on a cooling rack and let cool.
  • Fill the cups with apple pie filling and top with cinnamon.
  • Drizzle with icing if desired.

Instructions for Icing

  • Add a little bit of water to the powdered sugar and stir. Add water a little bit at a time until it reaches your preferred consistency. If you like it thick, use less water. If you like your icing thing, use a bit more.
