  • mini muffin tin


  • 16 oz package of pre cut sugar cookie dough 24 ct
  • 8 oz vanilla frosting
  • 11 drops blue food coloring
  • Red white, and blue stars and stripes sprinkle


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • (optional) grease a mini muffin tin to make the cookies easier to slide out
  • Put one piece of cookie dough into each of the 24 mini muffin tin cavities.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack to cool. The center will form a crater once cooled.
  • Once cooled, remove the cookies from the muffin tins and set them on a tray of baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Add frosting to the center crater of the cookie cups. You can do this using a spoon, or by using the star piping tip if you want them to look exactly like these ones.
  • Top with sprinkles.
