I love Pinterest!!! I find so many amazing craft ideas and recipes! A few months ago I saw this amazing post about making chocolate chip cookie cups using a muffin pan. The chocolate chip cookie cups looked amazing and perfect for a scoop of ice cream. Well I decided to try the idea out and it did not work as well as I had hoped.
I think I made a couple of mistakes in attempting this idea so I am calling this round 1 and will attempt with a new variation soon.
Here is how my attempt worked out
I rolled out frozen cookie dough so that it covered the muffin pans.
One thing I didn’t think about was how much the cookie dough was going to spread as it cooked.
I ended up with a large chunk of cookie dough falling off the side of the pan to the bottom of the oven.
I also don’t think I made the dough thick enough over the pan. The weight of the dough as it cooked pulled down around the sides and broke the cup portion.
Here is what my cookie cups looked like after I pulled them off the muffin pan.
They formed a slight cup but not quite the pretty cup I was hoping for.
I do have to say it did taste really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the middle of it.
Here are the changes I plan to make for round 2
-Use homemade cookie dough
-Double the thickness of the dough that I put on the pan.
-Place the dough in the middle of the muffin pan so it does not fall off the sides
-Let the cookies cool on the rack and then take them off so they do not crumble on the pan.
I love trying new recipes and ideas. Some times they work and other times they are not so cute.
