      Good question, Shreya. I haven’t frozen this recipe before, but I have frozen both chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake, so I would say, bake these and then freeze them and see how it goes. Just make sure you freeze them so that they maintain their shape and won’t get crushed.

    This recipe is definitely for the larger cupcake size pans NOT the minis!!!! The mini pan will overflow if you use them. I used regular sized muffin pans and had GREAT success with the quantity of dough.

    Erin, this puppy went into my recipe folder and my Yummly, although I’m not sure what that means. It will be made in my kitchen, although, a less beautiful, yet just as tasty, distant cousin. My baking makes up for in taste what it loses unabashedly in aesthetics.

      Thanks for the add to your recipe folder and Yummly (whatever that means 🙂 I appreciate you stopping by and checking out the recipe. I’m a huge fan of the cookie cup right now, and these little bites are no exception!

    Yum!! My mouth is watering right now 🙂 These look so yummy, and I love how versatile they can be! Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday this week. I’m sharing this on Pinterest, Twitter & FB.

      Thanks, Dee! These were a big hit at my bunco night! The girls loved them. The cookies where the perfect combination of crisp and chewy.

      They are amazing! I’ve had so many people try this recipe since it was posted and they are raving about it! They’ve filled it with everything from lemon curd to peanut butter…all good choices!

    These are so darn cute! (I love how you put them with big versions of small things!). I’ve never tried to make a cookie cup before, but you make it look so easy, I’ll have to give it a shot! Thanks for sharing with the Wednesday Showcase!

      Cookie cups are so easy, Cristina! You should definitely give them a try. Just about any type of cookie will do…but chocolate chip is my favorite! Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

    Erin, is there a word that means more than delicious? If so, that’s what these look like! We are definitely going to make these, but this weekend I am using your idea for a dessert I’ve been waiting to try. I have the ingredients for lemon curd, but couldn’t think how I wanted to serve it. Your cookie cups are the perfect idea. I found a GF sugar cookie mix and I’m going to make it per your instructions, then fill with the lemon curd and a few blueberries! Thanks for sharing this, I was stumped. Now I have 2 new desserts to try. Brilliant, just brilliant!

    Hi Erin, I really fancy this recipe, but thought I’d need a fancy tin to make the cookie cups. Such a simple idea that I would not have thought to do.

    Pinning for future reference.

      Thanks for the pin, Charlene! It is a fun way, so much goodness in one bite! You could fill them with chocolate or peanut butter filling and they’d be great too!

    • Erin says

      They’d be perfect for the 4th, Celeste! They make enough for a party and then some 🙂 I just love the flavor combination. Yu. Yum. Yum!

    • Erin says

      Awesome! It’s like cookies and cream in one bite! So, so good! They are great for when you’re entertaining because they are single serve, well, if you eat only one that is 🙂
