Baseball Hat Cookie Cups

Raven Higheagle


The last time that I made cookie cups, a few of them overflowed in the mini muffin tin. When I popped them out once they were cool, I noticed that the when they were upside down, they looked like baseball hats. I decided to run with the idea. The next time, I put the dough into the pan so that the dough would form a brim. After baking, I filled the cookie cups with peanut butter cups and decorated them with blue candy melts.

These Baseball Hat Cookie Cups are perfect for parties, your kid’s sports teams or even Father’s Day. You can customize them with team colors, simple logos or initials.

How to Make Baseball Hat Cookie Cups


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the cups and the top surface of a mini muffin tin.
  • 2Break apart the 24 sugar cookies in a package of Pillsbury Ready To Bake sugar cookies.
  • 3Place one piece of the sugar cookie dough into each cup and mound the dough up on one side, so that some of the dough is sitting on top of the pan.
  • 4(If these segmented cookies aren’t available in your area, use about 1 tablespoon of any sugar cookie dough in each muffin tin cup.)
  • 5Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  • 6Remove from the oven and gently press an unwrapped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup into each cookie cup.
  • 7Allow the cookies to cool completely and then carefully remove them from the pan.
  • 8I used a thin knife to apply a little pressure to the outside edge of the cookie cup and they popped right out.
  • 9If you want to make the cookies look even more like baseball hats, use a thin knife to cut off some of the outside edge of the cookie cup.
  • 10Then, you can use your finger tips to gently mold the edges of the cookie cups by pressing the crumbly edges into a straight edge.
  • 11Melt several of the blue candy melts (you want to work with a small amount at a time because it will harden after a few minutes) and pour into a sandwich baggie.
  • 12Cut a tiny hole in the corner and decorate the baseball hat. Add a blue sprinkle on the top.
  • 13Melt more candy melts, as necessary.
