Cute Cookie Bowls
Whether you are having a Birthday party for a child, needing a cute idea for an Easter basket, a dinner party, or just want to do something a bit special for the family, these little “cookie bowls” will be a hit.
I personally like to make up a little sundae bar with all types of toppings and goodies. Put a scoop of ice cream into the cookie bowl and then let your guests (or family) go at it making their own creations.
It’s a no brainer for children, but just let me tell y’all………..
These work wonderfully for little Easter Baskets.
Cook the eggs. Use one of our 2 ways cook Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs that are so easy to peel.
Adults LOVE to be brought back to their youth and this will absolutely do it!!!!
Here is the original sugar cookie recipe for these little cookie bowls that I had gotten from Wilton. Don’t feel that this is the only recipe you can use for these. Go wild!!!
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the outside of each bowl cavity of the muffin tin of your choice with vegetable pan spray.
In medium bowl, combine flour and salt. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition.
Roll out dough on generously-floured surface to 1/8 in. thickness. Cut 4-1/2 in. circles from dough.. Drape one circle over each bowl cavity of the muffin pan, pressing to form smooth surface.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until cookie cups are firm and golden brown. Cool on pan on cooling rack 10 minutes. Loosen bottom edges of cookies from pan using small spatula. Carefully remove cups from pan and cool completely. Wash, dry and spray pan; repeat with remaining dough.
