The other day my little guy and I were at Target checking out the new Easter Decor in the Dollar Spot.
While at Target, we headed over to the Easter candy section and I spotted my nemesis. Mini Cadbury Eggs.
I call them my nemesis, because every year I eat way too many of them. The are so addicting. I can’t help myself.
I’m nice like that, what can I say?
My kids are obsessed with sugar cookies, so I knew that I wanted to make our Easter treat using my favorite sugar cookie recipe.
I cut the recipe in half to make these Easter Sugar Cookie Cups because they were going to be small treats and I didn’t want to be overrun by cookies.
We decided to make little cookie cups, add green frosting that looks like grass, and place a candy egg on top of each one. They turned out so cute!

How to Make Sugar Cookie Cups
 To make the cookie cups, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.
 Add the vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated.
 Add the dry ingredients and mix. You won’t need to chill the dough for this recipe because you aren’t rolling out the dough.
 Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes. The baking time will vary by oven.
 Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately press the back of a one teaspoon measuring spoon into the warm cookies to create a cup shape.
 Allow them to cool for 3-5 minutes and then remove them from the muffin cups, using a butter knife if necessary.
 Allow the cookies to cool completely while you make the frosting.
How to Make the Frosting
This frosting recipe is my go-to recipe and the base for pretty much any frosting I make.
I only use butter and it makes such a difference over shortening.
 Add the powdered sugar a little at a time.
 If the frosting is too thick, add a teaspoon or two of milk until the desired consistency is reached.
 Add green gel food coloring and mix well.
When the cookies are cool and the frosting is made, it’s time to assemble these cute little treats.
 Add the frosting to a piping bag and use a Wilton 233 tip to pipe the grass inside the cookie cup. If you don’t have that tip, you can totally just cut the end off of a ziplock bag and make a little swirl.
 Once the grass is piped on, place a candy egg on top. There you go! You have cute little Easter Sugar Cookie Cups!
