Orange Cookie Cups, thick cookie cups are crispy on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside and stuffed with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. They’re so irresistible, you can’t eat just one!!
If you want a quick dessert that’s easy to mix together and bakes quickly, this is the recipe for you!
These orange Cookie Cups may look like muffins, but no no no, they’re cookies smushed in a mini-muffin tin and filled with icing!
You can absolutely make these into traditional cookies. The fact is, they’re fabulous as cookies. I just
needed wanted something a little different so I smushed them into muffin tins. When you bake cookies in a muffin tin, they don’t poof up in the center like the pretty dome-shaped bakery muffins. They kind of stay flat or mine usually have a little dip in the center. I actually like this because it’s great to fill with frosting, jam, whipped cream, or chocolate!
I filled these cookies with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. Can you say ‘drool-worthy‘? The cookie cup is crispy on the outside. It’s tender and buttery on the inside. The smooth cream cheese icing with a hint of orange zest is the perfect topping. There are two bites of bliss and totally worth running extra to burn off.
Since these cookie cups are small, they bake quickly and make an easy dessert if you’ve been asked to bring a snack to a luncheon or just want to make a neighbor, teacher or friend smile.
